Teens invited to read and win in July
  • Thursday 29 May 2014

Teen bookworms are invited to head to their local Sunshine Coast Council library to read and be in the running to win some fantastic prizes in the teenREADmonth promotion in July.

The teenREADmonth campaign, now in its fourth year, is open to teens aged 12 to 18 years old and it takes a few easy steps to participate.

Teens need to be a member of Sunshine Coast Libraries and register online or in person at their local library. When they read five items - which can be a book, magazine, ebook, graphic novel or manga - and complete a reading log, they can then go in the draw for one of three great prize packs.

Prizes include $50 vouchers to be spent in local shops purchasing books, sports gear or electronics. If you are a bookworm you will be rewarded for your passion - the more you read the more logs you fill out and the more chances you have in the prize draw.

Thanks to a partnership with Voices on the Coast Youth Literature Festival, there is also a prize for schools. Entrants simply nominate their school to be in the running to win a big box of books for their school library donated by Voices on the Coast.

teenREADmonth registrations open Monday, June 16 and close Thursday, July 31, at 5pm.

Visit council’s library website or visit your local library for more information.
