Stay cool at library’s fun Summer Reading Club
WHAT cooler way is there to spend a summer holiday than relaxing in air conditioning reading a book.
That’s exactly what school students can do at Banana Shire Libraries with the Summer Reading Club.
Get along to your local library, register to participate, decorate your own calico library bag, receive your reading log and activity booklet.
Or, sign up online at www.summerreading club.org.au.
One family taking advantage of the Biloela library SRC was the Burling family with mum Leonie and her four children, Alice, Arienna, Daman and Emaya.
“We love the library here and they have a great choice of books to choose from,” Leonie said.
“I encourage the children to read a lot and not use electronic technology.
“We enjoy the cool environment here and the staff here are always helpful and lovely.”
Director of council services Tom Upton said the theme for 2018 was Curious Creatures. The club started on December 8 and continues to January 25.
He encouraged kids to participate.
“The Summer Reading Club is a national annual program delivered in libraries and online that aims to encourage a continued love of reading and ongoing multi-literacy skills development among children and young people during the Christmas holiday break,” Mr Upton said.
There will be a wrap party for those who hand in a completed reading log on February 2 at 10am in the Biloela Library.
