Summer Reading Programmes

November 8, 2011

Summer Reading Programmes for children & teenagers aged 2 – 18 years. Three separate programmes as detailed below.

REGISTRATIONS ARE BEING ACCEPTED NOW – fill out the form at your local library or download the PDF file here 
– SRP form – and email/fax or drop it in to your library as soon as possible.

SRP: for children aged 2 to Year 6 .  THEME: Myths and Legends.The primary summer reading programme requires children to give a short (5 minutes) oral book report – basically telling the library staff about the story and what they thought of the book. Each report earns the child a small incentive gift.

After they have done a minimum of 4 reports, they earn an invitation to the Finale Party, a certificate, medallion and free book.  They can do up to 2 reports a week, and these can also be done by email if the child lives remotely or at other participating libraries along the East Coast if you’re going away.

This programme is designed to stimulate children to read, with their caregivers involvement, and to develop their communication skills, confidence and self-esteem.



 SR Plus : for children in Year 7 and 8  and Read Plus: for teens in Year 9 through Year 13

SR+ THEME: Steampunk

REGISTRATIONS ARE BEING ACCEPTED NOW; fill out the form at your local library or download them here – SR Plus form  or  Read + form – and email/fax or drop it in to your library as soon as possible.

Both SR+ and Read+ require children and teens to complete a written book report on each library book  read. For every 3 book reports completed (with adequate effort), participants earn a free new book, up to a maximum of 6 free books. Special fun activities, like gaming evenings, are offered.  Completion of the programme earns another free book & certificate.
