Aberdeen Reads

This year we have a brand new reading challenge: Aberdeen Reads! The challenge is open to everyone, so get family and friends involved and encourage each other to keep reading over the Summer holidays. 

Bookbug library challenge

With a different certificate each month, Bookbug's Library Challenge encourages young children from birth to discover and enjoy their local library. It is run in all libraries across Aberdeen City and it's a fun and exciting way to give your child a love of reading for life.


In Autumn 2016 #LovetoRead  was launched by the BBC to celebrate the joy of reading.
