Children's Library

Summer Reading Challenge 2022

The Reading Agency and Southend libraries are excited to introduce Gadgeteers, our Summer Reading Challenge for 2022 which runs from 16 July to 31 August for children aged 4 to 12. There will also be an Early Years Challenge for children under 4 as part of the fun.

This year's Challenge focuses on science and innovation. Become a Gadgeteer and use your curiosity and wonder to understand the science behind a whole range of interests from fashion and technology to cooking and music!

Children can sign up in any of our libraries from 16 July. Just fill out a joining form that you can collect from the library, pick up a goody bag and checkout your books. After reading 6 books, children can collect a certificate and medal from their local library and will be entered into a prize draw.

Children can talk to library staff about the books they have read, write a review and draw pictures. Drawings and reviews can also be sent to we will post them on our Southend Libraries social media (@southendlibrary on Facebook and Twitter).
