Young Bromley readers congratulated on Creepy House summer challenge
RECORD-BREAKING readers in Bromley were awarded for their hard work at an award ceremony following the Creepy House summer challenge.
More than 6,600 youngsters took part in this year’s scheme, an increase on last year’s numbers by 10 per cent.
The spine tingling fun was free to join, available at all libraries and aimed to boost reading ability in four to eleven-year-olds.
In the Summer Reading Challenge, children are invited to read six or more books of their choice during the holidays and are given rewards with each book they finish.
When the challenge is successfully completed, the budding readers also receive a certificate and medal.
Portfolio holder for renewal and recreation Councillor Peter Morgan said: "This year’s record shows our young residents know how exciting books can be and that libraries are at the very heart of our communities.
"A good book can bring real pleasure and reading can set you up with the skills you need for life. We look forward to seeing our young readers in the library throughout the rest of the year, not just the summer holidays."
