Calling all aspiring astronauts – We need your help catching the mischievous aliens who have stolen Hertfordshire’s library books – Visit your local library from 13 July 2019 and join our Summer Reading Challenge Space Chase!
We are celebrating 50 years since the first moon landing with The Reading Agency. Participation in the challenge is free and all you need to do is sign up at your local library and collect your mission pack. You will need to read six library books of your choice – these can be any books including eBooks – and come in and tell us all about the books along the way. We will give you collectable stickers to solve the mystery. All children who complete the challenge by the 7 September will get a certificate and medal and the chance to win a VIP backstage pass to our mission control prize event with children’s author Steve Cole.
On 13 July, we have an exciting launch event at St. Albans Library (drop in) and a Mobile Planetarium at Bishops Stortford Library (ticketed) – for details and to ensure you don’t miss out, visit our website www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/libraries
Last year we had over 20,000 children within Hertfordshire taking part – Help us break the record this year by joining us in our Space Chase Mission.
