The Summer Reading Club is a national program designed to encourage and promote reading and literacy during the summer school holidays. Each year the Summer Reading Club focuses on a different theme. This year, the theme of ‘Curious Creatures’ is an invitation to discover creatures big and small, actual to mythological, microscopic to megafauna through a host of library resources and activities.
Who can join?
This program is available to young people between the ages of 0 - 16 years. Parents can join their children and read to those who cannot read on their own.
Registrations will open on Monday 3 December 2018.
How does it work?
After joining the club, participants will be given a starter bag with reading logs, Summer Reading Club merchandise, activity sheets and more. Each time a participant reads a book or has a book read to them, they record the book or the number of hours spent reading in the reading log. Participants may read fiction or non-fiction, but all books should be suitable for their age level.
If a child is a member of Bookalicious, they can also add their books to the Bookalicious Reading Log.
When a participant has completed a reading log, they hand in the log to one of our library branches to enter the lucky draw. Participants may request additional logs to continue reading and may enter the draw for every reading log they complete.
Where can participants register?
Participants can register for the Summer Reading Club at any Campbelltown City Library branch by completing a registration form. Registrations open on Monday 3 December 2018.
When does the Summer Reading Club end?
The Summer Reading Club closes on Sunday 20 January 2019. The library branches hold simultaneous parties to celebrate the end of the Summer Reading Club and the participants reading achievements. Invitations are mailed out to all registered members.
