Join the awesome Animal Agents sleuthing their way into a library near you this summer

Animal Agents, Summer Reading Challenge 2017 begins in all South Gloucestershire Libraries on Saturday 15 July and runs until 16 September. It’s FREE to join!  

Sign up at your local library and receive a collector folder to start, then read six library books to get a medal and certificate, picking up goodies including stinky stickers, bookmark and a wristband along the way.  

Children’s reading can ‘dip’ during the long summer holidays, but taking part in Animal Agents keeps them reading – with a huge helping of fun! More than 6,600 children took part in The Big Friendly Read last summer:  

“My children really enjoy the challenge; it’s fun, interactive and it really encourages them to read and discover new authors” (Parent, Downend) 

Libraries are also holding free activities throughout the summer to help children complete the challenge including: Bristol Zoo workshops, ‘Meet a guide dog’ visits and craft sessions. Go to or drop in to your local library to find out more.

Staple Hill library hosts the launch of Animal Agents with Councillor Rachael Hunt, the Vice Chair of South Gloucestershire Council, Saturday 15 July, 10.30 - 11.30 when everyone is very welcome to join us.

Like us on and follow us on @southgloslibs to get the latest on all our activities for children.
