Our Vision for Glasgow Libraries are that they are amazing places to read, learn and discover - your trusted guide at the heart of our communities.
Whether you want to read for pleasure, for education or business Glasgow Libraries have something for you!
Join us for this year’s Animal Agents theme for the Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge. Along the way you’ll meet Bart the bloodhound and Daisy the rabbit and help them follow the clues and solve the crime.
The fun is open to everyone aged 4 to 12 and this year we also have our special pre-4 challenge. The challenge - should you choose to accept it - is to read ANY six books during the summer holidays. You can choose any books that appeal - all you have to do is borrow them from your local Glasgow library.
And remember you can pick up fun rewards along the way and a sticker for every book you read.
All those completing the challenge will get an Animal Agents certificate.
In all Libraries NOW!
