DENBIGHSHIRE children are being instructed to "get silly" this summer.

That's the theme of his year’s Summer Reading Challenge which takes place over the summer holidays at Denbighshire’s libraries and last year saw 2,918 children get involved.

This year’s challenge sees a shift to a new bilingual digital platform, supported by library e-lending services, online events and links to existing digital resources.

Children can also choose to collect a pack and some books from their local library in Denbighshire.

Developed by charity The Reading Agency, along with the UK public library network, it is now the UK’s biggest annual reading promotion for primary aged children.

In Wales the Summer Reading Challenge is support by Welsh Government and the Books Council for Wales.

To sign up online for the digital challenge go to, download e-books from the Borrowbox app or use the books you have at home.

Printed Silly Squad packs and books can be order and collected from Denbighshire libraries by phoning your local library to order and arrange an appointment to come and collect them. Children can do both if they want to. The challenge will run until the end of September.

Denbighshire libraries are not yet open for browsing – but you can access books via the Order and Collect service and using the digital library to download e-books and e-audiobooks for free via the Borrowbox app, and comics and magazines via the RBDigital app.

Anyone who’s not already a library member can join online too, go to for further information.
