Book in for summer fun in Midlothian

MIDLOTHIAN children are being asked to rise to the challenge at local libraries.

Youngsters are being encouraged to take part in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge, which runs in all Midlothian libraries from June 20 to August 25.

Every year, thousands of four to 11-year-olds across Britain take part in the challenge, which is the UK’s biggest reading event for children in libraries.

Each year there is a different theme and this year, it’s called Story Lab.
