The Summer Reading Challenge Is Here

The much-anticipated Summer Reading Challenge has officially kicked off, inviting young readers to dive into a world of creativity and imagination. This year, the theme is “Marvellous Makers,” celebrating the ingenuity and inventiveness of creators big and small.

Children across the country are encouraged to explore a wide selection of books that inspire making, building, and creating. From stories about young inventors to books packed with DIY projects, the Marvellous Makers theme aims to ignite the spark of innovation in every participant. Libraries and community centers are buzzing with excitement, offering a variety of activities and events designed to complement the reading experience, including workshops, craft sessions, and interactive storytelling.

Participants can track their reading progress, earn rewards, and share their creations with fellow book lovers. The challenge not only promotes literacy but also encourages children to develop new skills and discover the joy of making. As the summer unfolds, young readers will undoubtedly transform into marvellous makers themselves, inspired by the books they read and the creations they bring to life.

There’s lots to do in the Redruth Library and it’s more than just borrowing books. 


Keep checking our Facebook page for information on school holiday craft activities and special events throughout the year. If we don’t have the book you want, don’t worry, we can request it from another Cornwall Library, ready for a pick up as soon as possible.


There are toilets on site. Please ask a member of staff for access.
The nearest Car Park is Fair Meadow. Directly across the street is a bus stop. Further up Station Road you can find the train station.
