Power to read

Power to read program 2018-2019.

If you are in Year 7 or 8 (age 11-13 years old) enrol for our summer reading challenge – The Power to Read – from 26 November 2018 at Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom and Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-pō.

It is well recognised that children’s reading levels can often slip over the summer when they are on holiday. Halting the summer slide can be as simple as encouraging kids to read five books over the summer break. The library does its part by providing a free reading focused programme during the summer holidays. 

Read books and write short book reviews. For every three reviews completed, you can select one new book as a reward. Some of these are the latest titles and it is possible to earn up to five new books over the programme. 

The programme runs from the 10 of December 2018 till 18 January 2019. Enrollments open on the 26 November 2018.

We are extremely grateful to the Eastern and Central Community Trust for funding this programme.
