The closing celebration for the Summer Reading Challenge was held at Sleaford Library at the beginning of term.

Children who completed the challenge received certificates from Victoria Allen and Roxy the Pets As Therapy dog who have been visiting the library on Wednesdays over the summer holidays.

Victoria said: “I have been coming in with Roxy my shih tzu when the children have been coming in to choose their books.”

The children made friends with Roxy, whose calm temperament is used to put people at ease about animals and chat about their books.

A total of 97 children completed the target of reading at least six books. There were also prizes for the most library visits, most reviews written and most books read.
