Summer Reading Challenge

Prepare for lift off as we travel across the galaxy on a very special reading mission at Salford Libraries: it’s the Reading Agency Summer Reading Challenge 2019!

Get ready for an out of this world adventure as Space Chase launches in libraries across Salford on 13 July and runs until 21 September.

Meet the Rockets! This super cool family lives on a satellite station in space. They are going on a very important mission to save missing books from alien bandits, and they need your help!

Take part in the Summer Reading Challenge and join the Rockets on a chase through space to find the aliens and save the Moon Library.

There’s a whole programme of events and activities planned at Salford libraries for families over the summer to celebrate the Summer Reading Challenge, including Space Books, Virtual Reality and Doddlebots!  Visit our Salford Libraries Live page to find out more.

Taking part 

Taking part in the Challenge is simple – when your summer holidays start, you can sign up for free at your local library.

You’ll receive your very own Space Chase mission folder to get you started.

  • Read six library books (or more!) over the holidays to collect special stickers to add to your folder.
  • Collect all the stickers to find the aliens, save the missing books and complete the Challenge.

Grab your space suit and take a giant leap into the library this summer!

Once you have visited the library 3 times, completing the challenge and returned your 6 books, we’ll give you a FREE Family Swimming Voucher (2 adults and 2 children)* worth £12.30.
