Summer Reading Quest 2024

Saturday 13th July - Sunday 1st September

During opening hours at Ipswich County Library

Suffolk Libraries’ exciting new summer reading programme for primary school children launches on 13 July until September.

Reading Quest runs over the school summer holidays, offering an exciting opportunity to get the whole family involved in reading and making memories this summer.  

Reading Quest this year builds on the previous Summer Reading Challenge by encouraging children to read for pleasure over the summer months, but is designed to be more engaging this year, with a Suffolk theme to involve the whole family!

All children aged 2-12 can take part and can visit their local library from Saturday 13 July to collect a free Reading Quest map and start their quest. Children will be encouraged to take part in activities and experiences across the summer rather than read an expected number of books. These ‘quests’ will range from ‘reading under the covers with a torch’ to ‘choosing a recipe book and ‘making something together as a family’.

Every week during the summer holidays, library staff and volunteers will be on hand to chat to children about the activities completed each week and the exciting books they’ve read. While visiting the library, children can collect a weekly reward and a new stack of books to enjoy at home.
