The 2022 Winter Mini Reading Challenge


The 2022 Winter Mini Reading Challenge, presented by The Reading Agency in partnership with Science Museum Group, is on!

The Summer Reading Challenge 2022 saw thousands of children reading and exploring science and innovation as part of this year’s Gadgeteers theme. Now that it’s getting chilly and the winter holidays are approaching, we’re back with even more fun experiments and reading encouragement.

Children can join the Gadgeteers as they use their ingenuity and creativity to keep everyone entertained during a snowstorm. Get ready for cool do-it-at-home experiments and learn along the way as you read for pleasure with the Winter Mini Challenge! The Challenge runs from 1 December 2022 to 20 February 2023.

The Winter Reading Challenge will consist of three visits to the library. Initially, the children will need to visit the library to sign up to the challenge where they will take their first lot of books out for the challenge. Once they have read the books, they will need to come back for their second visit where they will return the books and exchange them for another set of books. Once they have read these, they will need to return for their third and final visit where they will complete the challenge and receive their prizes for doing so.

There will be lots of prizes up for grabs, including certificates and medals! Keep an eye out on our social media channels and our website for further information, and in the meantime visit Summer Reading Challenge for more information on the challenge.
