CHILDREN in Denbighshire are being encouraged to become reading heroes by getting involved in their nearest library.

The Summer Reading Challenge has returned and this year’s theme is ‘Wild World Heroes', which aims to inspire children to take action for nature and the environment as they enjoy reading.

The Reading Agency and libraries have partnered with wildlife charity WWF to create an exciting adventure in the fictional town of ‘Wilderville’.

Through reading books, collecting rewards and learning all about our planet, challenge participants will help the heroes make Wilderville a greener place to live.

With incentives to collect and plenty of brilliant books to enjoy, the challenge is the perfect summer activity to build young readers’ skills and confidence during the long break from school.

Children can take part at their local library or online through the official digital challenge platform

The challenge started on July 10 and takes place at libraries across Denbighshire.
