Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge 2020

Derbyshire Libraries are supporting this year’s Summer Reading Challenge which is going digital – with events and activities happening online.

Children are invited sign up to the Silly Squad website where there will be lots of information, quizzes, resources and book suggestions for them to enjoy.

Locally Derbyshire County Council’s libraries will be joining the fun, throughout the summer, by offering online story times, mini book reviews and recommendations, a forum for sharing ideas and suggestions about books and a regular craft activity. 

The Silly Squad is a loveable group of madcap animals looking for fun and the aim is to encourage children and their families to have fun too, getting silly and reading anything that makes them happy.  That could be comics, joke books, poetry, fiction or non-fiction, in digital or print format, books they have at home or ebooks and eaudiobooks borrowed through Derbyshire Libraries online.
