Sum­mer read­ing project for kids

Matamata Chronicle - - Opinion -

Look­ing for ac­tiv­i­ties?

Then head along to your lo­cal li­brary next week to sign up for the Ki­wa­nis Sum­mer Read­ing Pro­gramme.

The ‘Big Bush Read’ is un­der way at Mata­mata-pi­ako li­braries from next Mon­day.

Chil­dren can visit any li­brary to reg­is­ter from De­cem­ber 12, or reg­is­ter online at sum­mer-read­ing.

The read­ing pro­gramme is loads of fun and en­cour­ages kids to keep up their read­ing over the sum­mer hol­i­days. Reg­is­tered chil­dren read li­brary books ( ei­ther by them­selves or with an adult) then re­port in to li­brary staff.

Each time they re­port in they



hol­i­day re­ceive a small in­cen­tive, ac­tiv­ity sheet and a sticker their folder.

If you are go­ing away for the hol­i­days you can still take part. Kids can still check in us­ing the phone, fax, email or online at the web­site ad­dress above.

There are fun ac­tiv­ity days dur­ing the pro­gramme, where chil­dren can get in­volved in fun bushthemed crafts.

Once chil­dren have checked in three times they are el­i­gi­ble for the fi­nale party at their lo­cal pool – where they can have a free swim, re­ceive a cer­tifi­cate and lis­ten to the ex­cit­ing sto­ry­teller.
