THE libraries in Yate and Chipping Sodbury are running events through the summer as part of the Big Friendly Read.
Youngsters are urged to enrol for the reading challenge, which runs until September.
More than 1,000 children have already signed up to read six library books. They will also collect Big Friendly Read cards from some of author Roald Dahl’s best-loved stories along the way to get a medal and certificate.
The aim of the challenge is to help children maintain their reading levels during the summer holidays.   
This year’s challenge celebrates 100 years of Roald Dahl and the libraries will be running free creative activities sessions during the event.
