You can also download your card here, to enter Summer Reading for individuals, families and groups. The interactive card makes it easy for you to mark off each circle as you read/listen to a book, attend an event or activity at your local library.

Remember there are lots of library activities taking place in Aberdeenshire which will also count towards ticking off the circles on your collector card.

Once your card is full drop off at your local library or you can send a copy back to us via email:
