Wool Community Library Summer Reading Challenge

The Reading Agency’s National Summer Reading Challenge as always has been actively promoted again this year in Wool Community Library. Children have been challenged to read a minimum of six books during the School summer holidays. Those completing the challenge received a medallion and certificate to mark their achievement.

For their 5th year of running the Challenge, the Friends of Wool Community Library (FOWL) hosted a very popular additional afternoon session on Wednesdays during August where between 7 and 16 younger children and parents each week enjoyed stories and activities provided by the FOWL volunteer Children’s  team.

Not only that, they put up a special Book token prize for one lucky Challenge entrant.

Chair of FOWL, Sue Kerr drew the winning name from a list of 60 entrants at the close of the Challenge. The lucky winner was 7 years old Bella McAllister from Bovington who  received her prize from FOWL Trustee and former Chairman, David Smith and Waterstones representative Theresa Manners in the appropriately special setting of Waterstones Bookshop in Dorchester.

David said  “We always look to encourage young readers in the excitement and enjoyment of reading, keeping their minds and imagination active during the break from formal schooling.  Bookworm Bella from Bovington is an excellent role model, a true Busy Bee but especially in our eyes an A-Star reader!”

……..and Bella’s  choice of book for her token?  “Billionaire Boy” by David Walliams and “The Racehorse who wouldn’t Gallop” by Clare Balding
