Just 1 week left to complete the mischief-making challenge- pick up a cracking book, you can do it! We look forward to seeing you all at the medal ceremonies to celebrate.

There will be pranks galore and a ton of fun at your local library this summer! This year's Summer Reading Challenge is Mischief Makers: celebrating the 80th anniversary of the much-loved comic, Beano. Children taking part in the Challenge this year will follow clues to explore their colourful collector's map of Beanotown: meeting Dennis, Gnasher and friends along the way.

You can sign up at your local library, and then read at least six library books of your choice to collect special stickers and other incentives along the way - all for FREE!

Reading to your child will give them a head-start at school and a flying start in life. Reading increases language skills and will help your child to be a more confident, inquisitive learner. So whether your child's reading journey has just started or they're well on their way, come in for a visit - you be amazed at what you'll find!

Our youngest readers are so important to us that we give them a very special First Library Card featuring Hamish the Bear. It's easy to join the library, just drop into your nearest East Renfrewshire Library with some identification or complete the online joining form and start your child on the road to a lifelong love of books and libraries.

With touch and feel books, board books and picture books, DVDs, Bookbug and storytelling sessions, your child is never too young to join the library.
