Summer Reading Programme

The Summer Reading Programme has arrived! Register today!

Get Wild About Reading this summer!

The Summer Reading Programme is for primary school-aged children (ages 512) and helps to keep kids enjoying books and engaged with reading over the long summer school break. Most of all it's fun!

Registrations are open until 16 December

Register online using the form below, or sign up at your library.

Once registered, call in at your local library to pick up your booklet, choose some books, and start reading! Kids will then need to report-in weekly on the books they have read, from Wednesday 3 January. The programme is free and kids get fun incentives each time they report-in.

All children who report-in four times will get a brand new book to keep, and an invitation to the Summer Reading Programme Finale party, held at Waikanae Pools on Thursday 1 February at 4pm.

There are four ways to report-in about books you've read:

  • Talk to a Volunteen or Librarian at your library
  • Draw a picture
  • Write a paper review to be displayed in the library
  • Fill out our online form

The last date to report-in is Friday 26 January.

If you are going away on holiday during January... No problem! Take your library books with you or use Axis360 to get free eBooks! If you have access to the internet kids can report-in using the online form. You can renew your library books online if you have a password for your library card.

We look forward to meeting you and hearing about what you are reading over the summer!
