The Adult and Teen Reading Challenge
The Adult/Teen Reading Challenge is here for 2019!
Explore the Kāpiti Coast District Libraries collections and challenge yourself to discover books you may not normally encounter.
Comment on the book you have read to enter the draw for the weekly prizes of coffee vouchers at a cafe in your town or a gift basket! Additionally, attending one of our literary events during this period qualifies you for an entry. The weekly draws will take place in each of the four libraries so there are plenty of chances to win!
Each entry will also be entered into the draw for the grand prize of a $100 book voucher. This will buy some awesome brand new books!
The Reading Challenge runs over six weeks, from Monday 16 September to Sunday 27 October.
Ages eligible are 13+
For more details and conditions see below or call into your library; pick up a challenge bookmark and start reading!
Read, Comment, Win!
Choose a book to fit the challenge. A list of the challenges are available at the libraries or see below. Read a different book for each challenge. All reading must be from the Kāpiti Coast District or Smart Libraries collections.
Every comment form will go into the draw to win a weekly prize and the grand prize. Comments can be made on the paper form and placed in the box available at each Kāpiti Coast District Libraries branch or online from our catalogue on the website.
There are weekly prizes, spot prizes at the BIG READ-INS, and a grand prize. Comments must be entered by close of business in the current week to be eligible for the weekly prize. Online entries, which are your book reviews, need to be submitted by Sunday 12pm to qualify for that week's prize. Attend one of our library programmes focused on reading and/or writing for another chance to win. This challenge is for teenagers aged 13 years or over and adults.
