Summer Reading Challenge - Gadgeteers

The Summer Reading Challenge 2022 - meet the Gadgeteers! Saturday 9th July - Saturday 10th September

This summer, children aged 4-11 can visit the Library and get involved in a science and innovation themed Summer Reading Challenge. By reading 6 books over the summer holidays and collecting small prizes along the way, children can help the Gadgeteers come up with innovative ways to get everything ready for their summer party!

Younger siblings aged under 4 can also get involved by taking part in a special Mini Challenge.

This year we've an extra prize too! All children that complete the Challenge at Lincoln Central Library will receive a voucher for a free swim at the OneNK Leisure Centre.

Alongside the Challenge we will be running weekly children’s activities linked to the themes of food, fashion, technology and music.
