Investigate the Summer Reading Club and win
  • Tuesday 10 December 2013

Kids are invited to follow their curiosity and investigate all kinds of mysteries in the national Summer Reading Club until 22 January 2014 at Sunshine Coast Council libraries.

Last year 35,614 children and young people across Australia participated in the Summer Reading Club and over 260,000 books were read. Register your participation in this year’s Summer Reading Club and become part of the growing Summer Reading Club community that is reaching across Australia.

This summer’s club is packed full of things to investigate – everything about mysteries, crime scene investigations, exploring your world and more.

Entering is easy by either registering in person at any Sunshine Coast Library or Mobile Library, by completing the online registration form at council’s library website or calling1300 LIBRARY (1300 542 727).

Then you simply need to read five items of your choice including books, magazines, comics, e-books over the summer holidays.  Write your reading list on the reading log and hand it in to your local library by 5pm Wednesday 22 January 2014.

Check the specially created Summer Reading Club website to find loads of stuff to win. Create stories, send your art creations to the e-gallery and play the art fraud detective game. There are some really cool prizes including Ruby Redfort and Tom Gates book packs. There will also be mystery prizes and other incentives for you along the way and winners will be notified by the end of January 2014.

Led by the State Library of Queensland, in partnership with the Australian Library and Information Association and other state and public libraries the Australian Summer Reading Club is an annual program that aims to encourage a continued love of reading and ongoing multi-literacy skills development among children and young people during the summer holidays.

Be sure to participate in this year’s Summer Reading Club and head to council’s library website for full details.
