Space Chase Challenge – are you ready?

Are you ready to launch into outer space for 2019’s Space Chase Challenge? This year’s Summer Reading Challenge from The Reading Agency will see the astronaut team of joiners chasing across the skies to capture the rogue aliens who are taking off with Hertfordshire Library books. Hertfordshire Libraries need you to join the challenge in celebration of 50 years since the first moon landing. This is a great opportunity to develop skills and enjoy reading as a family.

Space Chase launches on Monday 13 July 2019 with lots of fun and interactive space activities across Hertfordshire. Bishop’s Stortford will be hosting a mobile planetarium, where children can get access to the stars. Pre-booking is essential and takes place in the library or online here.

Meanwhile, over at St. Alban’s children will have the opportunity to come and experiment with the Ozobots and learn to code, virtual reality headsets, cubetto space mats and more creatorspace activities.

To take part in the challenge, children will need to join and read any six library books, the selection of books is as endless as our universe. It is all about finding something fun and engaging that children want to read. They have the whole summer to get stuck in and collect the stickers for their mission folder. Every child that completes their six books by Sunday 7 September 2019 will receive a certificate, medal and prize and a chance to win a VIP pass to the prize event at mission control.

The best news is this Space Chase Challenge is completely free to take part. Just zoom in to your local Hertfordshire library to join from Monday 13 July 2019 and blast off.

Last year Hertfordshire Libraries had over 20,000 children within Hertfordshire taking part, please help them to break the record this year by encouraging families to take part in the Space Chase Challenge.
