Meet the Silly Squad

The Reading Agency and Kent libraries are excited to introduce the ‘Silly Squad‘.

Due to our libraries being closed, this year’s challenge will be online only.

Children aged 4 to 11 can join the ‘Silly Squad’, an adventurous team of animals who love to have a laugh, and get stuck into all sorts of funny books!

The challenge will begin on Friday 5 June and end late September. Taking part is easy and free, visit the Silly Squad website to sign up.

The challenge is to read any books that make them laugh, smile and be happy during the summer. Whether that’s comics, joke books, poetry, fiction or nonfiction (book or eBook format).

Families are encouraged to join in and ‘get silly’. New fun and silly content is available every week including activities, games, quizzes and more.
