Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge

Reading Challenge - Animal Agents Animal Agents The Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge Scotland takes place every year during the summer holidays. You sign up at your local library, read at least six library books of your choice and collect special stickers and other goodies along the way - all for FREE!

For 2017, there's something peculiar happening at the library - and that's where the Animal Agents come in! the Animal Agents are a detective agency manned by all kinds of clever animals - furry, scaly and slippery - who are out to crack the case with a little help from their friends.

As children read library books on the Summer Reading Challenge, they will receive a host of stickers, some with mysterious smells! And by collecting the stickers they'll help the Animal Agents find out what's been going on and who is to blame!

Celebrate the start of the school holidays library programme and the launch of the Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge with Professional Storyteller Ron Fairweather
