Summer Reading Challenge & Activities 2017

Animal Agents is the theme for this year's Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge. Children aged 4 to 12 are encouraged to read six books during the summer holidays.

You can collect all six cards and other prizes as you read any library books of your choice. In addition, each time you borrow (and read!) a book you will get a prize draw entry.

Sign up to the Challenge at your local library and get a free collector folder to keep your cards in.

Read the books, catch the crooks - it's fun, it's friendly and, best of all, it's totally FREE


There is also a programme of activities in every library. All library activities are free but numbers are sometimes limited. Please book your free tickets at the library holding the event. Also note that children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.

For further details please contact Young People's Services: Tel 01620 820612 or email ypslibraries@eastlothian.gov.uk

Please see below for the programme of summer activities.

OneClickDigital and Zinio changes

OneClickDigital and Zinio for Libraries are rebranding and becoming RBdigital - this means some changes ahead for us. On Tuesday 27th June the RBdigital app will become the main app for our OneClickDigital eBook and eAudiobook collections and our Zinio for Libraries magazine collection.



What this means for you . . .

 If you currently use the OneClickDigital app:

  • you will receive an update notification on your device
  • you will notice the app icon change to RBdigital
  • you will retain all history and bookmarks in the new app

If you use the OneClickDigital desktop apps for eBooks and eAudiobooks:

  • the new RBdigital audiobook Media Manager will also launch on 27th June and will initially need to be manually downloaded

If you currently use the Zinio for Libraries app:

  • you will receive an in-app notification that the app is changing and you will be encouraged to download the new RBdigital app from their app store
  • you can continue to use the Zinio for Libraries app for a short time
  • you will retain all history in the new app but will need to re-download magazines

If you use both apps, you only need to install the new RBdigital app once to access all eMagazines, eBooks and eAudiobooks in one place!

To begin using the new app . . . 
  • Existing Users: Login with OneClickDigital OR Zinio for Libraries credentials
  • New Users: Before opening app, create a new account at RBdigital eAudiobook/eBook website OR RBdigital magazines (these links will be available when the site goes live).
