Animal Agents, this year’s free summer library reading challenge for children aged 4–12, goes live on Saturday at a library near you.

The challenge, which is supported by the National Booktrust Charity, is designed to not only keep children reading over the summer holidays but aims to help them develop a real love of reading too.

The Summer Reading Challenge theme this year is ‘Animal Agents’.

Cllr Rachel Powell, Portfolio holder for Powys Libraries said: “This fun challenge will support parents in encouraging their children to practice their reading over the holidays. It provides both parent and child with a perfect opportunity to connect over books and spend some quality time together. Reading not only expands children’s imagination but boosts their literacy skills too.

“Our library staff have stickers, certificates and prizes on offer for those taking part and we also have a free Family Swim Voucher to give away for any Freedom Leisure pool in Powys - valid until October 31. I hope children will take up the challenge and enjoy some fun animal antics over the summer holidays.”

The Animal Agency is staffed by a whole host of clever creatures, ready to solve all kinds of crimes! Those taking up the challenge will get to know the Animal Agents and find themselves unravelling mysteries in the library this summer.
