Aberdeen Reads – This Summer, can you read for 6 minutes each day?

Challenge yourself this summer!

This year we have a brand new reading challenge: Aberdeen Reads! The challenge is open to everyone, so get family and friends involved and encourage each other to keep reading over the Summer holidays! What’s more everyone who takes part in Aberdeen Reads will be entered into a prize draw, and those who complete 3 or more mini-challenges will be entered into an additional draw.

The challenge will run from Friday 5 July to Saturday 24 August. Pre-registration for the challenge will open on Saturday 22 June.

What will it involve and how do I take part?

  • The challenge is to read for at least 6 minutes every day. All kinds of reading will count: picture books, fiction, non-fiction, e-books, talking books, magazines, news articles…anything you enjoy!
  • Mini-challenges each week to help you explore the library and find new things to read. Keep an eye on Aberdeen City Libraries’ website and social media to discover the new challenges as they are announced each Saturday.
  • Exciting free events will take place in libraries throughout the holidays for families taking part in the Challenge – don’t forget to book your place!
