We hope you enjoyed doing The Big Friendly Read in 2016. We’d really like to find out about how it went, so please answer these 14 easy questions to tell us about it and help us make sure the Summer Reading Challenge is as good as it can be. If you complete the questions you can enter a prize draw to win a £30 shopping voucher. The winner will be drawn at the end of October 2016.

We will analyse the results and publish them in a freely available report. Your individual responses will be kept anonymous. We might use extracts from your comments on our website or for the media but you will not be named. The results will also help your local library understand more about your experience.
