As Story Lab - Summer Reading Challenge draws to a close, the list of books logged on the website during the summer has reached over 95,000, and children are adding their final books to earn their gold medals. Libraries have been posting pictures of their displays and medal ceremonies onto our facebook page.
Our competition to Finish the Story has now closed and, with 7,000 entries to judge, our panel of experts has a big task ahead of them. We will be announcing winners from September 14 - starting with Marcus Sedgwick's Elf Girl and Raven Boy and The Creepy Cave.
In the meantime, children can keep visiting the Story Lab website and adding books to their profiles. There will be lots of incentives and activities to encourage them to try all kinds of new books and continue their reading into the autumn and next year.
