Rethink what your local library can offer you and your children! This summer Gwynedd Council libraries are offering plenty of varied activities and entertainment for all the family. Free activities range from reading challenges to animal shows, all across Gwynedd.

This year the reading agency presents Animal Agents the summer reading challenge 2017, in conjunction with Gwynedd council and the Welsh Government. These fun activities will keep your child attentive and interested all summer long while also benefiting them educationally.

This exciting initiative has helped children to read over 600,000 books in Wales and also stimulates your child’s creative and imaginative side all whilst learning valuable language skills. These free activities also offer a great safe platform for your child to make new friends and grow socially all in the name of learning.

Throughout the summer there will be a variety of activities including summer crafts, stories and songs, animal shows and spies academy which will be held in many libraries across the county. To find out more about what activities are held, ask at your local library, visit www.gwynedd.llyw.cymru/libraries or look for the details on the Gwynedd Libraries Facebook page.

Councillor Craig ab Iago, Gwynedd Council Cabinet Member with responsibility for libraries said: “Reading is an essential life skill but supporting children to read at an early age is also important to insure a development in reading for pleasure.

“There’s a wide range of fun activities being held in Libraries all across Gwynedd, and the reading challenge is a brilliant way to encourage children to continue reading over the summer. Children are being encouraged to read nine books over the summer and if they complete the challenge they will receive a medal and certificate-so go to your local library this summer for plenty of fun!”
