Can you help us get Library Bear all the way round Scotland and home again before the summer ends? 


Challenge yourself this summer!

Running from Saturday 26 June until Saturday 21 August, this challenge is open to people of all ages, so get family and friends involved and encourage each other to keep reading over the summer and help us send Library Bear on his holidays! 


What will it involve? 

  • For every book read or challenge completed, Library Bear will travel 10 miles around the Scottish Coast. 
  • Complete as many of our 8 challenges or read as many books as possible and help us send Library Bear on his travels.
  • The more books you read or challenges you complete, the further Library Bear can travel!
