We had a great time in Summer 21 with the annual reading challenge - lots of zoom events and lots of in person!  A quieter Summer than we're used to but lovely to see children again!  This year's challenge was made a personal challenge that we tailored to YOUR CHILD'S reading ability - giving them an achievable aim - in a fun way!  We had Neath Port Talbot Libraries Summer Reading Challenge "Packs" a bag of gifts for you and this years Reading Agency theme for the Summer Reading Challenge 2021 was WILD WORLD HEROES!!   Catch up online and do online games - or maybe get help using the online BOOKFINDER! which helps children choose their books!
