Summer Reading Club


Coming Soon 959 x 331 pi Banner


Every year the library runs a massive Summer Reading Program. The theme for this year's Summer Reading Club is 'Game On: Supercharge your Summer'.

The Summer Reading Club is delivered nationally with over 40,000 Australian children registering and collectively reading almost 300,000 books.

A child's reading achievement typically declines over the summer holidays and this reading loss each year accumulates to a crucial two-year gap in reading by the time children leave primary school. The Summer Reading Club is a fun way to prevent this slide and it is a free program. 

The program runs from December 1 to January 31 and, while aimed at infants and primary students, it is open to all children.

To join in the fun children can:

  1. Visit the library from December 1 to register, and receive their free Summer Reading Club starter kit.
  2. Read and listen to books from the library.
  3. Collect prizes and bonuses.
  4. Come along to the fun activities and workshops in the library.
