Get ready to join Macquarie Regional Library’s Summer Reading Club Challenge

The Summer Reading Club will return to Macquarie Regional Library and more than a thousand public libraries across the country for another fun-filled season from 1 December 2019.

This year’s theme, A Roomful of Stories, encourages eager young readers to discover new worlds as they explore and connect with books and a range of interactive activities held in the library. Created for children and young people aged 0 to 18, the Summer Reading Club is a free program that inspires imagination and instils a love of libraries and reading.

Manager of Macquarie Regional Library Kathryn McAlister said the program offered children something fun to do over the holidays, allowing them to grow their reading confidence.

“The Summer Reading Club is a great way for children to maintain their reading levels over the holiday period,” said Mrs McAlister.

To participate in the program, children simply register at the library and receive their registration kit. They then log time spent reading and collect prizes and incentives along the way, including activity packs and fantastic book prizes from popular and best-selling children’s authors. Children will also go into the draw to win a Samsung Galaxy tablet.

Over 43,000 Australian children registered with the Summer Reading Club in 2019, reading over 360,000 books between them over summer, and organisers are hoping participants will read over half a million books in 2020.
