Live Life Aberdeenshire Libraries are offering their customers the chance to take part in a reading challenge for all ages.

A spokesperson for Aberdeenshire Council said: “Readers can take part in the Winter Word Challenge individually, together as a family or as a group of friends.

“It starts on Saturday, December 14 and will run through the winter months, ending on the extra day of 2020, which is Saturday, February 29.

“To start the challenge, readers should get down to their local library and pick up a challenge card.

“The challenges are made up of several options, from reading seven books borrowed from the library to downloading library eBooks.”

The card has seven circles, each representing a challenge, and once they are filled the card can be entered into the prize draw.

Readers can take part in the challenge as many times as they want, and each time it will be submitted into the prize draw.

Fantastic prizes have been donated by local businesses across Scotland. Winners will be drawn after the challenge is completed and there will be a prize-giving on Saturday, March 14.

Prizes include a complimentary pass to Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park; a family pass to Landmark in Aviemore; a Mackie’s of Scotland Hamper; a Grampian Transport Museum Family Membership and lots more.
