The Summer Reading Club is running once again at all East Gippsland Shire Libraries these summer holidays.

Last year the Summer Reading Club was a huge success! Over 48,000 children participated across Australia, and more than 333,000 books were read.

Celebrating its sixth year as a national program, the Summer Reading Club could be even bigger and better this year, with the help of your school!

 

The theme for the 2016 Summer Reading Club is Heroes and Villains. Young readers will be encouraged to engage with a variety of traditional and non-traditional heroes and heroines as they explore the themes and conventions associated with super and everyday heroes, and their villainous counterparts.

 

At all East Gippsland Shire Libraries Summer Reading Club activities will run from Thursday, 1 December 2016 until Tuesday, 31 January 2017.

 

Registration is FREE! When participants register at our library they will receive a reading log/registration form. Participants will record the books they read on the reading log and along the way they will receive small incentives including bookmarks, stickers, pencils and bouncy balls to encourage them to read over the summer.

 

National prizes are also up for grabs for those who participate in the online activities through the Summer Reading Club website at www.summerreadingclub.org.au
