Kerry-Library-Logo-300x197TRALEE Library is welcoming children to participate in a fantastic adventure that will keep them reading throughout the school summer holidays, the Summer Reading Challenge.

The Reading Challenge has a fantasy theme, called Mythical Maze. It will take young readers into a magical land where they can discover the joy of reading.

Taking part is easy. All you have to do is read six books to explore the maze and meet some weird and wonderful creatures. Every time you read two books, your library will give you a set of stickers to help you complete the gaps in the maze.

Keep track of your progress on the website You can read any book you like. If you need suggestions you can go to the website and try the book sorter challenge. You can also post a question to some famous authors and take part in some mythical games.

All libraries in Kerry – Tralee, Killarney, Listowel, Ballybunion, Dingle, Kenmare, Killorglin, Cahirciveen, Castleisland and Mobile Libraries are offering the challenge.

Ann Fitzgerald, co-ordinator of the Summer Reading Challenge explained: “It is so important that children of all ages continue to read over the summer holidays, and this Reading Challenge does the trick. It challenges boys and girls to read six books of their choice during the holidays with collectable incentives and rewards. All Kerry libraries are involved, including the mobiles service.”
