Organised by the Henry Bloom Noble Library and sponsored, for the fifth year in succession by Scottish Widows, the Summer Reading Challenge – Story Lab – took the form of a series of workshops and activity sessions in the library during the summer holidays aimed at encouraging young people to discover the world of books and power of words.
