Children can join our adventurers as they explore the labyrinth that introduces them to fantastical creatures from the world of legend and mythology, simply by reading six books from the library. They can discover the secrets of Mythical Maze and meet some of the fantastical creatures – from a Nessie to a Minotaur and all sorts in between!

To take part families need to visit their local library from Saturday 12th July to sign-up for free; if you’re not already library members you can join at the same time and this is free too!  Children will be challenged to make three visits to the library during the summer and collect different ‘scratch & sniff’ stickers and other rewards.  Children who complete all three visits by Saturday 13th September will be awarded a certificate and medal.

To keep children keen over the summer libraries will be offering a programme of exciting free Mythical Maze events – check the website for details of what’s happening near you.

Libraries are also asking for 14-25 year-olds to volunteer and help run the Mythical Maze challenge in a library near them.  Volunteers will be offered full training and can gain new skills including communication, team work and experience of working with families.  To find out more about volunteering visit the website.
