Get wild about reading! Report-ins begin Wednesday 3 January!
The Summer Reading Programme is for primary school-aged children (ages 5–12) and helps to keep kids enjoying books and engaged with reading over the long summer school break. Most of all it's fun!
Don't forget to call in at your local library to pick up your booklet. While you are there choose some books, and start reading!
From Wednesday 3 January children can report-in weekly on the books they have read. Kids get fun incentives each time they report-in.
All children who report-in four times will get a brand new book to keep, and an invitation to the Summer Reading Programme Finale party, held at Waikanae Pools on Thursday 1 February at 4pm.
There are four ways to report-in about books you've read:
The last date to report-in is Friday 26 January.
If you are going away on holiday during January... No problem! Take your library books with you or use Axis360 to get free eBooks! If you have access to the internet kids can report-in using the online form. You can renew your library books online if you have a password for your library card.
We look forward to meeting you and hearing about what you are reading over the summer!
