THE Vale's most voracious readers have won awards for taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge at libraries across the county.
The theme for this year's challenge, which was run by the Reading Agency and taken up by 97 per cent of libraries in the UK, was Creepy House.
Aimed at four to 12-year-olds, the challenge encourages children to keep reading over the summer holidays.
Children who take part in the challenge have to read six library books over the summer, receiving stickers and small prizes along the way.
During Children's Book Week (October 7-11), Cowbridge Library staff visited local schools to hand out certificates to all those who completed the challenge.
The Summer Reading Challenge is open to all school children and is designed for all reading abilities. Schools work with local libraries and give out information to encourage children to take part, and most libraries run Summer Reading Challenge linked early years activity for pre-schoolers.
