The Titanic Reading Voyage has been devised by Libraries NI and children aged four and over are invited to call into any library and sign up to this reading challenge during the holidays.

The reading challenge is to encourage more children to love reading and this year, mums, dads, grandparents or other adults are also invited to participate in the challenge with their children.
