• Child or Family member taking part will download a passport from the Live Life Aberdeenshire website - https://www.livelifeaberdeenshire.org.uk/live-life-at-home/

• Organisers ask that they register to take part via our online sign-up form.

• For 0 to 11-year olds, they have their own online passport and are encouraging family members to take part with them and submit an entry individually and/or as a family.

• For 12 years and above, they can take part with their own passport and access a variety of digital services as a member of the library.

• The online interactive passport will have circles to keep track of the books they have read and challenges/activities they have completed.

• The completed passport will then be entered into a draw to win signed books by various authors and many more exciting prizes.

This would be uploaded to an email outlined on the website or send to Libraries HQ, address below.
