8-12 Year Olds: Pure Dead Magic by Debi Gliori


Pure Dead Magic by Debi Gliori is a gloriously imaginative, hilarious novel, about the Strega-Borgia clan (and their mythical beasts), who hire a nanny to help restore calm at their Scottish castle. It’s Nanny McPhee meets The Addams Family, with added dragons and belly-laughs.

13-16 Year Olds: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins



17-19 Year Olds: Divergent by Veronica Roth




Summer Reading Challenge


It’s not too late to sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge, as children can set their own targets this year. The Challenge is online-only for 2020. Join in here.


Medway Libraries has organised a summer series of short videos by children’s authors to celebrate the Summer Reading Challenge. So far we have posted clips by Ellie IrvingChitra Soundar and Andy Stanton.



Libraries Reopening


From Monday 6th July, you can return your books to our six Community Hub libraries. From Monday 13th July, we'll be launching a new click and collect service. This means you'll be able to reserve books online for collection at the Community Hubs.


Other hub and library services will gradually re-open when it is safe to do so.


All updates are available on our website.
