East Renfrewshire youngsters rewarded for their reading

Young readers complete the Summer Reading Challenge

 Summer Reading Challenge awards

Hundreds of kids were given certificates and medals for completing the Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge.

They all had read up to six books during the recent school holidays in the initiative run by national charity, The Reading Agency, in partnership with East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure and Tesco Bank.

The challenge aims to encourage youngsters to read more books and this year's event had the theme of The Big Friendly Read to mark famous children's author, Roald Dahl's 100th birthday.

Chairman of East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure, Jim Wilson recently visited Eaglesham Library to present Reading Challenge medals and certificates to local youngsters.

Jim said: "We aim to encourage youngsters to read books from an early age and hopefully they'll take a love of stories and books with them throughout the rest of their lives.

"Our libraries are an important community asset, providing a fun way of learning and developing young minds.

"The Summer Reading Challenge is a great way of inspiring kids to visit their local library and when they get there, they'll find there's a lot more going on than just books sitting on shelves."
