Summer Reading Challenge Gadgeteers 2022The Gadgeteers Summer Reading Challenge is coming to a library near you this summer!

This summer, children aged 4-11 can visit Wirral Libraries to meet the Gadgeteers and to get involved in a science and innovation themed Summer Reading Challenge.

Through taking part in the Challenge, with free materials from Wirral Libraries, and online via the Challenge website, children will be able to join six fictional Gadgeteers. The characters – brought to life by children’s writer and illustrator Julian Beresford – use their curiosity and wonder to understand the science behind a whole range of interests, from fashion and technology to cooking and music.

Through an exciting book collection and accompanying activities, the Gadgeteers will help to spark children’s curiosity about the world around them, and encourage them to feed their imagination over the summer holiday. They will be boggled by brilliant facts, gaze at the stars, and be inspired by tales of creativity and invention. With plenty of great options across picture books, early readers and middle grade books, there’s lots to keep children busy at Wirral Libraries

When does it start?

The challenge runs from Saturday 9 July and is aimed at children from 4 to 11 years old. 

The Summer Reading Challenge is delivered by libraries and produced by The Reading Agency. It is open to all children, free of charge. The Reading Agency is the leading national charity inspiring people of all ages and backgrounds to read for pleasure and wellbeing. Working with partners such as the public library service, their aim is to make reading accessible to everyone. The Reading Agency is funded by the Arts Council.
