This year’s Summer Reading Challenge will be taking place across all of Perth and Kinross including Highland Perthshire, Strathearn, East Perthshire, Kinross and Perth City Centre.

Inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, we invite you to visit your local library from the 17th of July to participate in the Space Chase challenge. The reading challenge offers primary school-aged children the chance to read six books of their choice and take part in fun activities, collecting special rewards along the way.

Various events and activities will coincide with the reading challenge and you will embark on an astonishing journey to learn about space. From amazing astronauts to zero gravity, there is so much for you to learn about.

Remember even Han Solo thought the Death Star was too big to be a space station!
