If you are aged 3-12 years old enrol for our summer reading challenge – The Great Reading Carnival– from Monday 2 December 2019 at Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom, Shannon Community Library 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.

Make the most of summer and join our Summer Reading Challenge!

Where to enrol

You can enrol at your local library from Monday, 2 December. Bring your library card or join the library. It’s free!

Children are required to report-in a minimum of four times to successfully complete the programme; this requires them to talk one-on-one with a librarian about their reading. The children are rewarded for their efforts with an incentive each time they report-in. Children who complete four report-ins are invited to a Finale Celebration.
