We need your help!

This year's Summer Reading Challenge theme has been announced - Marvellous Makers. We will be celebrating creativity of every kind over the summer holidays but we want to start with your amazing drawing skills. 

Children at Newcastle Libraries love colouring in so we would like you to design a colouring sheet that shares your love of art, crafts, music, dance or any other way you like to be creative. 

Draw it in pencil or black pen on an A4 piece of paper, write your name and library number on the back and hand it to your local library or email it to by Friday 24 May for your chance to feature in our special colouring book over the summer.
