There is always something for children to do at our libraries.
Events for children
Wild World Heroes, Summer Reading Challenge 2021
The Reading Agency and libraries are excited to introduce Wild World Heroes, Summer Reading Challenge 2021; a celebration of nature and action for the environment, in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund UK.
During the summer holidays children aged 4-11 can sign up at their local Havering library from 10 July, then read any six library books of their choice to collect special stickers and rewards along the way – all for free.
This year only two library visits are needed, one to pick up a pack and a second to return a completed Book Review sheet in order to receive a medal and certificate.
Parents and carers will be discussing books and giving out stickers to their children.
Visit our events listings page to see all our free Summer events.
In line with Covid regulations, we currently have regular pre-recorded storytimes on our Havering Libraries Facebook page, with new ones going up every Saturday.
