Summer Reading Challenge 2018 – Mischief Makers
From Saturday 14 July, join Dennis, Gnasher and friends on this year’s Summer Reading Challenge and enjoy mischief and mayhem all summer. All you have to do is read six or more books over the holidays and just let us know what you’ve enjoyed most. There are lots of amazing activities to take part in too! For more information ask at your library or go to Your West Cheshire for the full list of events.
The Summer Reading Challenge is open to everyone aged 4-11 years and we love see all children taking part. If you’re unsure or a bit nervous about taking part, then we’ve got a social story (PDF,1820KB) for you to read, which explains what it’s all about and what to expect when you go to the library.

The Home Library Service is available to anyone who cannot easily visit a library due to disability or incapacity. Volunteers deliver books or talking books on a regular basis, free of charge.

Where is the library? How do I get there?
Northwich Library is in the main shopping area of the town centre. We are on a pedestrianised precinct up at the top end of Witton Street (Sainsburys end) near the Flower Shop and Penny Black Pub.
Nearest bus stop is at bus station on Watling Street about 5-10 minutes walk away from library. Northwich Railway Station is the nearest train station and is slightly out of town centre corner of Station Road and Manchester Road and will take about 10-15 minutes to reach on foot.
We do not have our own car park but Northwich has a number of free car parks all within easy reach of the library mainly at the back of the pedestrianised area off Leicester Street. You can also park at the Memorial Hall, on Watling Street and walk up.
There are disabled parking areas within easy reach of the library off Albion Road, which runs along behind the library.
