Organised by Laois County Library Service the annual Summer Reading Challenge, aimed at children 12 and under and their families, is simple, fun and free! Children are encouraged to read eight or more library books of their choice during the summer holidays. They will receive their own Summer Stars Reading Card to record their progress and the Summer Stars Reward Stamp will be added to their card at the library for each book read. Fun rewards will be provided along the way. Those who finish the challenge will be presented with their medal in their local library. Registration for Summer Stars is now open.
