2014 Summer Reading Challenge launched
The Henry Bloom Noble Library has launched this year’s Summer Reading Challenge, The Mythical Maze. Sponsored by Scottish Widows for the seventh year in succession the challenge is an initiative of independent charity The Reading Agency and supported by the library. It aims to open up the world of books to children, encourage creativity and widen their reading range by challenging them to read six library books during the summer holidays.
