This year’s theme is on ‘animal agents’.

Maggie Lusher, library manager said: “We are hoping that this year’s Summer Reading Challenge will be as successful as last year’s, or even better, with everyone enjoying a great summer of reading and our free craft activities, all related to the theme of animals who are secret agents.”
