More than 600 young readers signed up for this summer’s Creepy House Reading Challenge at Downham library, with more than 400 children completing the task of reading six books during the school holidays.
On Saturday, 150 children and their families joined Cllr Anthony White, library staff and volunteers at a special medal presentation ceremony at the town library.
A spokesman for the library said: “Well done to all children who completed this year’s challenge. “ We have had the best year yet with over 400 earning their certificate and medal, and over 90 children becoming Super Achievers by reading 20 books!
“The library has been buzzing all summer with children choosing and talking about all the fantastic books on offer to borrow free from the library.
“If you’ve not quite finished the challenge it’s not too late – just come into the library before the end of September.”
