November 10, 2013

Kids, want to win awesome prizes? Earn books? Be entertained by fabulous storytellers? Now’s your chance!  Pre-enrol or register your interest now, and confirm after 25 November!

There are two amazing Children’s Reading Programmes on this summer through your local Community Library.  Registration begins Monday 25 November 2013.  But you can pre-enrol now!  Hurry in as places are limited.

  • Summer Beach ReadSummer Beach Read for children up to Year 6

Children aged 2 to Year 6 “report in” to library staff and tell them about the library book they have read, in their own words.  This usually takes 10 minutes or less.  To finish, children do a minimum of 4 reports, and a maximum of 6.   Children can do up to two reports per week (i.e. 2 books), and remote members can report-in by email (written reports).  If you are traveling, children can report-in at other participating libraries.  Children earn small gifts as incentives along the way.  Completion (4 reports) earns an invitation to the Finale event, plus a free book, medallion & certificate.

  • iRead Book QuestiRead Book Quest for Years 7 and 8

Same as above, except reviews are written in a booklet provided (i.e. not oral reviews) and includes a technology draw (be in to win a Tablet or  iPod).

READ+ programmefor year 9-13 high school students, attending school or resident in Tararua.

Same as iRead programme with a separate technology draw AND for every 3 book reviews you do, you earn a FREE book (your choice from a limited selection). We expect a reasonable effort for reviews at this level.   There may also be a few special events just for you!  Pre-enrol now as limited places.
