The Summer Stars reading challenge is in full swing at Monaghan County Libraries.

Up to 3,000 children across Co. Monaghan will take on the challenge to read up to 8 books across the Summer months.

Participating in the Summer reading challenge should be a fun thing for children but it also has numerous benefits.

  1. Reading over the Summer helps reduce the risk of a ‘Summer Slump’ in Reading levels.
  2. Regular reading enhances vocabulary, comprehension & overall literacy skills.
  3. It encourages a love of reading for pleasure – children can choose books based on their own interests rather than prescribed reading.
  4. Completing the reading challenge can give children a great sense of accomplishment and a boost their confidence in their own reading ability.

All children are welcome to participate but library membership is required.  (It’s free to join the library).   Each child will receive a Summer Stars book bag, bookmark, pencil and reading record card.
