Event description

Description

Prepare to blast off with Space Chase! The 2019 Summer Reading Challenge, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, at East Riding Libraries.

Make your way to Planet Library each week to receive your mission commands and discover a fantastic selection of out-of-this-world books. Sessions last about 30 minutes each week through the school holidays.

Children taking part in The Challenge will read six books over the course of the holidays, and help our super space family, The Rockets, as they track down books nabbed by mischievous aliens! Read every week this summer and get special rewards.

The Summer Reading Challenge is FREE but is very popular. All space cadets must book their place in advance.

Summer Reading Challenge is organised by The Reading Agency, supported by Arts Council England.

UFOs spotted!

That’s Unidentified Fun Objects of course.

Sign up to our bonus weekly ‘Space Craft’ for just £1 per session or £5 for all six. Space Craft will take place after each Summer Reading Challenge session. Make and take away a range of fun space-related arts and crafts. Please pay at the library when you arrive for your Summer Reading Challenge session. Cash only

Calling all solo pilots

Unable to make it to your Space Chase meeting? Have no fear cadet, we’ve got printable packs just for you to follow along at home or on holiday. Take the first rocket over to the Summer Reading Challenge webpage to download six weekly activity packs.

Booking your place

Places must be booked for the first week for each child attending. This will secure the child's place for the same day and time each week throughout summer. You will need your child’s library card number to book your place. Accompanying adults do not need to book. Not a member? Membership is free, all that’s needed is the ID and signature from a responsible parent or carer. Pop into your nearest library to join.

Space Chase! Summer Reading Challenge is a six-week event. Book your place online by choosing your desired time in the date selector on this page.

Space Chase sessions will take place on the same day and time each week. To help as many children take part as possible, East Riding Libraries will be running multiple sessions each week for some libraries. However, due to space and resources, you can only attend the session time and library you originally booked.

Space Chase, Summer Reading Challenge 2019 runs between Monday 22 July to Saturday 7 September. Please note, all libraries are closed on Monday 26 August for the Bank Holiday, speak to the Library staff in your local branch for alternative arrangements if one of your sessions falls on this date.
