Ready, Set, Read! is this year’s sports themed Summer Reading Challenge where you can earn yourself a medal for reading six books or more!  We’re delighted that our partners in MCRactive are supporting the Challenge with some amazing videos to encourage you to get moving with some simple games and challenges.   

We have some brilliant sports bags which you can borrow for free from three of our libraries – Moss Side Powerhouse, Newton Heath and Forum Library.  These have been created by the Youth Sport Trust in collaboration with The Reading Agency to keep minds and bodies active over the summer break.  See what’s in the bags in video 1, but if you’re not near one of these libraries, don’t worry – you could set up the activities shown in videos 2, 3 and 4 with things you have at home.   

The Summer Reading Challenge runs in Manchester until 16 September, so don’t delay – join up today!  Find out more on our library blog.
