The 2022 Winter Mini Reading Challenge, presented by The Reading Agency in partnership with Science Museum Group, launches across Awen Libraries today.

The Summer Reading Challenge 2022 saw thousands of children reading and exploring science and innovation as part of this year’s Gadgeteers theme. Now that it’s getting chilly and the Christmas holidays are approaching, the Challenge returns with a wintery theme for more fun experiments and reading encouragement.

To complete the Winter Mini Reading Challenge, children will need to make three visits to the library. There will be lots of prizes up for grabs, including certificates and medals for those who complete it by 20 February 2023.
