Following the great success of the first two years of the summer reading challenge, the Boyle Library have joined up with a number of other local authorities to offer children the opportunity of taking part in the 2015 Summer Reading Buzz. The challenge will take place through the months of July and August. Children will register for the challenge and receive a loyalty card, and a small gift. With every book the child reads they will have their card stamped and once they have read six books they will receive a small prize, and on completing the challenge by reading ten books they will receive further prizes. When the child has completed the challenge and filled in their card (ten stamps = ten library books read) they will also receive a certificate at the end of the summer. Registration cards are available in the Boyle Library.
