The Summer Reading Club – is Game On!!
Do you want to encourage your kids to read and maybe even win a few prizes??
Sports, games and so much more await discovery in the national Summer Reading Club Game On running throughout December and January at your local library.
Game On is an invitation to celebrate our Aussie sporting culture, teammate-ship and the countries who will be visiting Australia to participate in the Commonwealth Games.
Community Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said she was very passionate about the annual State Library of Queensland Summer Reading Club program as it encouraged a continued love of reading and ongoing multi-literacy skills development among children and young people during the summer holidays.
“Last year more than 55,000 children and young people across Australia participated in the Summer Reading Club,” Cr McKay said.
“My grandchildren love this program which kicked off on 1 December. I know they will be reading as many books as possible to be in the running to win some great prize packs.”
Children just need to read five items of their choice over the summer holidays – this includes books, magazines, comics and eBooks. They then complete the reading log and hand it in to their local Sunshine Coast library by 5pm Monday, 15 January, 2018 – it’s that easy!
There are four prize packs up for grabs:
- Book prize pack – a voucher to a local bookstore and a bundle of awesome books
- Game On prize pack – a toy store voucher to embrace your inner champion
- LEGO® prize pack – a stack of bricks and things to help you become a Master Builder
- Superhero prize pack – Is it a bird? Is it a plane? This pack will unleash your inner superhero.
This year there are bonus prizes for the most books read throughout summer. Get reading, complete those logs and the bonus prize could be yours.
• Gold – $25 bookstore voucher
• Silver – $15 bookstore voucher
• Bronze – $10 bookstore voucher
