Regular Happenings

Kids' Online Bookclub

Kids ClubWhat are your favourite books? Read anything great recently? Why not tell the world, and your friends, about it and win prizes?

Head over to our Kids Online Book Club and fill in the review form to tell us about a great (or not so great) book you've read recently and you can win prizes.

You'll receive a prize after your first 2 reviews and then every 5th review after that. So what are you waiting for? To get the prizes you must have your own library card. There are spot prizes for really excellent and thoughtful reviews too!

All reviews will be published on the Kids Blog. You can read the reviews to find out what other kids are reading and even write comments on other's reviews. Don't worry if your review doesn't show up straight away - sometimes it can take a day or two to appear.
