Summer Reading Challenge for Kids

All of a sudden the end of the school year and Summer are nearly upon us, and lo and behold, it RAINS! Need an activity to occupy your kids’ imaginations? Come down to the library, get some fabulous books, and pick up a “Wild About Reading: Summer Reading Challenge” booklet for them.

Every year the team at Wellington City Libraries put their heads together and come up with a list of 60+ amazing books. We then challenge kids aged 5 – 13 years to read as many books as possible from the list between the 1st of December and the 31st of January. Once the kids have read a book, they go to the kids page, write a review for our Kids Club and win prizes! So don’t forget to pick up the Summer Reading Challenge booklet, available from the 18th of November at all Wellington City Libraries.

P.S. You might find yourself reading their Summer Reading Challenge books as well!
