Summer Reading Club 2021-22

Summer Reading Club is back!

The Summer Reading Club is coming back for another year of fun! This year the theme is Tales and Tails - and there will certainly be lots of opportunities to explore those two ideas

How Do I Play?

The program runs from Wednesday 1 December 2021 to Monday 31 January 2022 and is for children aged up to 16 who can read independently.

To play, you'll need to register via the Beanstack app, online, or with staff at the library if you don't have a device or computer.

All you need to do is read 10 books, or read for 10 hours, to go into the major prize draw – easy! If you are using Beanstack you will automatically be entered into the major prize draw when you complete the reading. If you are using the printed reading log, fill in your details on the sheet, make sure your guardian signs it, and hand it over to staff. For every 10 books/hours you read you can enter the major prize draw again.
