This Summer, children are invited to join the Space Chase Summer Reading Challenge 2019 at Merton libraries which launches on Saturday 6 July and runs until Saturday 7 September. As part of this years Space Chase, Merton libraries are calling for children aged 4-11 to sign up to read six books throughout the duration of the Summer. Each child will be challenged to borrow and read any six library books within this given time.

To take part in Space Chase, all children need to do is sign up at their nearest library. Children will team up with futuristic family ‘The Rockets’ as they track down books nabbed by a mischievous band of aliens. As children read their library books, they receive special stickers, some with mysterious smells. By adding these stickers to their collectable mission folders, young readers will help the Rockets find clues, having lots of fun along the way. Those who finish the challenge will receive a medal, a certificate and have a chance at winning one of many prizes including an iPad, a family ticket to Warner Bros. Studio Tour, The Making of Harry Potter and an annual family ticket to The Science Museum Wonderlab.

There’s a whole programme of events and activities planned at the libraries over the summer to celebrate the Summer Reading Challenge. Just contact your local library or go to to find out how to take part.

Merton libraries would like to thank its sponsors for supporting this year’s Summer Reading Challenge:

Merton Council, Wimbledon Community Association (Wimblecomm), Bill’s Wimbledon, New Wimbledon Theatre, Explore Learning, Wimbledon Park Watersports Centre and The Entertainer. Special thanks to Morden Islamic Centre and Andrews (Morden branch) for sponsoring the two main prizes: an iPad and a family ticket to Warner Bros. Studio Tour, The Making of Harry Potter.
