Get ready for Gadgeteers, arriving in your local library this summer!
Children across Essex are being challenged to help the Gadgeteers by reading six books and earning cool stickers. Along the way they’ll discover amazing science and innovation in the world around us. If they complete the challenge, they receive a certificate and medal. Find out more about how to take part in this free activity on Essex Libraries website: libraries.essex.gov.uk
Gadgeteers takes place in all Essex libraries from Saturday 16 July to Saturday 3 September.
A library card for every child!
Essex Library Service wants every child to experience the joy of reading. That’s why they’re giving every pupil in Essex a library card as part of their Essex Year of Reading campaign.
By now, most pupils will have received their library card and a campaign bookmark from their school. All you need to do is take it to any Essex library to activate it and start borrowing. As well as access to thousands of books, Essex Libraries also offer e-books, e-audio and e-comics.
If you haven’t had the card, don’t worry. Just go into your local library and ask to join. (You’ll need ID such as a driving licence, bank statement or recent utility bill.) It’s free, it’s quick and it’s easy.
