Haddenham Community Library is hosting a summer reading challenge for children aged 5 to 12 years.

To participate in the challenge you will need a 'Creepy House' pack. These are be available up to Saturday 17th August, but they may run out before that as they are going fast. So get your skates on!

The challenge includes craft activities at the library for participants — on Thursday 1st August (10-11am), Tuesday 13th August (2-3pm) and Friday 23rd August (10-11am). The challenge ends on Saturday 31st August.

Challengers can also go to "Animal Entertainment", an interactive event with creepy crawlies (insects) on Tuesday 6th August (11-12am). This needs to be pre-booked at a cost of £3.50p.

For more information, please contact library manager, Emma Barrett (Tel: 0845 2303232 ) or speak to one of her team of excellent volunteer staff.
