This year, for the first time ever, the Summer Reading Challenge  is going digital!  The annual reading promotion from Rochdale Council has already begun and continues through until the end of summer.

For 2020 join the Silly Squad, a lovable bunch of animals who run a fantastic fun house, in celebrating funny books, happiness and laughter.

But beware: a mysterious baddy is waiting to spoil the fun!

As they read books, children taking part online will find out more about the fantastic characters and will unlock digital rewards, activities and video content as rewards for their reading.

It’s so simple to join!  Just head over to the Silly Squad website and sign up for FREE.

The challenge to read and enjoy books is still the same, although the books don’t have to be library books this year – they can be ones you already have at home or have borrowed from friends. 

Why not browse and borrow from our many eBooks, eAudio books and eMagazines in our FREE digital library?  Find out how easy it is to access these here, Search and read eBooks and eAudiobooks.  Why not search the collection in the Rochdale Libraries online catalogue?  There are lots to choose from!
