2020 Summer Reading Club

Src web

Each year, South Burnett Libraries participate in the State Library of Queensland’s Summer Reading Club. 

This program, which will run this year from 1 December 2020 – 31 January 2021, encourages a love of reading and continued literacy development in children and young people during the summer holidays. 

The slogan “Join the Club! Join the Challenge!” encourages children to read something each day of the school holidays. 

To help keep children motivated, there are 40 challenges to complete each summer. 

These challenge sheets will be available for collection from 1 December 2020 at each South Burnett Libraries branch.

This year, the Summer Reading Club will launch an exciting new website based on this year’s theme of Myths, Legends and Fairy Tales. 

Children of all ages are invited to register for the club via the Summer Reading Club website, with each participant given the opportunity to create their own avatar upon joining!  This website will go live soon… https://summerreadingclub.slq.qld.gov.au/

Activities to compliment the Summer Reading Club will be hosted in each library during the school holidays, with children in Blackbutt, Kingaroy, Murgon, Nanango, Proston and Wondai invited to complete a special scavenger hunt! 

Each child to complete the hunt goes in the draw for a bonus prize, drawn on 31 January 2021. 

Children will also have the chance to join South Burnett Libraries new loyalty program ‘The Kingdom of Libraria’ and collect a limited-edition Kingdom of Libraria suitcase template to take home and create - the perfect way to store the Libraria passport and tickets!  For more information on this wonderful program, please visit https://www.southburnett.qld.gov.au/resources-children
