2018 SRC results

The Reading Agency has announced the results from this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.

Support from libraries and children for the programme remains strong with 98% intending to take part again next year.

There was an increase of 1% in the completion rate, an increase of 1% in the number of boys starting and a 2% increase in boys completing this year and an increase of 3.2% in early years participation.

However, the pressures on all local authority services has meant that there has been a 8.2% drop in overall participation in the 2018 SRC. TRA will be in constant communication with libraries to discuss support as the encouraging increased completion rate is to be celebrated.
