Dive into the world of books this summer with liveArgyll libraries, as they encourage junior members to join in reading for fun.

The charity, which is responsible for leisure and library services across Argyll and Bute, is calling on four- to 11-year-olds across the region to start turning the pages and get involved with its summer reading challenge.

Running from Wednesday June 23 until Friday September 3, participants will be challenged to read five books of their choosing from any of the liveArgyll libraries, including BorrowBox, an online library with a fantastic selection of e-books and audiobooks.

They will then be asked to register these books to show they have completed the challenge and will receive a goodie bag and certificate in return.

It is easy and free to register if youngsters are not yet junior library members.

For more information and to register for the challenge visit the liveArgyll website, use the QR code on this page or pop into your local library.
