Children’s Summer Reading Programmes 2017

November 6, 2017

Summer Reading Programme  for children age 3 to school Year 6

Places are limited so you must book in your child. Registration opens by 20 November – check with your local library for dates. Programme runs 4 December 2017 to 12 January 2018.

Caregivers / parents must register the child.

Dannevirke Library is taking registrations from 2 November until places are full. 

This programme is designed to develop communication skills, confidence and self-esteem in children. Children are required to do a short verbal summary (‘report-in’) of a library book to library staff or volunteers, who will discuss and encourage. Four reports complete the programme.

Reports are limited to one report at a time, and up to two in any one week.  Rural children may report via email (written) if they are unable to visit the library.

Children receive a small incentive gift after each report, and may complete a fifth bonus report if they wish.  At the end of the programme, each child who has completed the programme is invited to our Finale to receive a certificate, free book, and enjoy some entertainment.

 iRead Programme  for children in school Year 7 or Year 8

Registrations open by 20 November – check with your local library for dates. Programme runs 4 December 2017 to 12 January 2018. Children may register themselves.

Dannevirke Library is taking registrations from 7 November until places are full.

Kids are required to write short reviews of library books that they have read (at their reading level).

Library staff or volunteers assess these reports; for every three reviews, they can select one new book as a reward. Some of these are the latest titles, and it’s possible to earn a maximum of four books.
