Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge 2020 in Sheffield

The Summer Reading Challenge this year will be a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter. This year’s Challenge will be a bit different as libraries are currently closed so you will need to take part online. To join in the fun you will need to register online and read six books of your choice. You can still borrow books from the library by using our online E-Library. You can find lots to read and listen to, just go to You will need to have a library card to be able to use the E-Library but you can still join at Books that you have at home can also count towards your challenge.

The digital Summer Reading Challenge will be available on the Reading Agency’s website from the 1st June and officially launched on Friday 5th June. There will be lots of fun events and activities for you to participate in. Just go to the Reading Agency website:

But don’t forget, libraries will be re-opening as soon as it is safe to do so and will be running the ‘real’ Summer Reading Challenge where you will be able to get your collectors pack and stickers every time you read a book and your medal and certificate when you have read six books. We look forward to seeing you all then!
