The Winter Mini Challenge is back, and this year the theme is Everyone is a Hero


The Winter Mini Challenge encourages children to keep up their reading habits over the winter holidays, with a free-to-access website featuring rewards and incentives for reading and reviewing books.

Over the school holidays children can experience a 'dip' in reading skills and learning, and due to the disruption to education caused by Covid-19, this year is set to have an even greater impact on learning loss.

For more information please go to 


To take part , children simply read 3 or more books – these can be any books of their choice.  Every time they finish a book they add it to their Challenge website profile and leave a short book review.  Reaching their online reading goal will unlock a virtual badge and a special Everyone is a Hero certificate to print off and keep.


Although most libraries remain closed for the moment, we are offering a Select and Collect service from Cranbrook, Showfields and Southborough libraries (and others throughout Kent), so children will still have access to books from the library.  They can also download free eBooks and eAudiobooks from our website.  For more information about Select and Collect and downloading eBooks, go to


There will also be lots of fun activities on our Facebook page – just go to Tunbridge Wells libraries.
