This October there’s something strange happening at the library – and that’s where the Animal Agents come in!

The Animal Agents love solving mysteries and they need your CHILD to help them crack their biggest case yet. From solving the case of the graffiti writing to the strange case of a missing lunch, children will join in the fun with the Animal Agents by reading along. As children read library books on the challenge, they will receive a host of stickers, some with mysterious smells. By collecting these clues in their detective folder, young readers will help the Animal Agents find out what's really been going on behind the scenes!

Join the Reading Challenge 2017 and help the agents uncover the truth. Reading for pleasure opens up a new world for children and engages their imaginative potential. Everything changes when we read!
