About Sommerles.no

Sommerles.no is the library's reading campaign for primary school pupils during the summer holidays. The campaign lasts from the 1st of June to the 31st of August. Participants collect XP (points) by solving challenges, visiting the local library for codewords, and, above all, reading and registering as many books as possible during the summer holidays. Participants also have exclusive access to a specially written Sommerles story by the author, Mari Moen Holsve.
Participants win digital trophies, and small prizes that they can collect at the library. There are many different prizes to choose from, and participants will be notified once they have collected enough XP to collect a prize.
