July 13, 2012
Teenagers are asked to read six books during the summer holidays as part of a new Teen Reading Challenge.
Those who complete the challenge, organised by Wokingham libraries, will be entered into a draw to win an iPod Nano.
To enter the challenge, teenagers just need to use a library card to borrow the six books.
A Teen Day will take place at Wokingham Library, in Denmark Street, on Thursday, August, 16, to support the challenge.
Activities will include a Manga workshop on how to create and develop character ideas, author talks and a creative writing workshop.
Elizabeth McDonald, reader development officer in Wokingham, said: “The Teen Reading Challenge is a new venture and is a great addition to the activities our libraries already offer teenagers.
“There are lots of wonderful books around that young people read for pleasure – not just because they’re told to at school.
“Of course, libraries are about much more than books these days and the Manga, creative writing and author visits are amazing opportunities for teenagers to indulge their interests and fire their imaginations.”
