The ever-popular Aberdeenshire Summer Reading Challenge launched yesterday, with a focus on bringing families on staycation together over a good read.

It has been organised by Live Life Aberdeenshire to encourage children, young people and families to read and get active during the summer holidays.

Last year, over 4,000 children in communities across the area signed up for the challenge, reading thousands of books in the summer-long event to encourage love of literature.

This year Live Life Aberdeenshire are taking a slightly different approach and challenging participants to do lots more at home, in their garden or around the local area.

There are so many ways to take part: you can borrow eBooks and eAudiobooks from the Digital Library and you can read, listen or share books with your family too.

Live Life Aberdeenshire are encouraging grandparents, aunties, uncles and family friends to take part together, as a great way for people to connect during this difficult time.

There will be a wide variety of challenges, including camping out, exercise, creative activities and more to keep you busy and active.

To take part all you need to do is download a passport from the Live Life Aberdeenshire website to record your challenges.

The Summer Reading Challenge runs from Monday, June 22 until Saturday, August 22.
