The popular Summer Reading Club kicks off tomorrow and the team at MidCoast Libraries is putting a call out to local kids and their families to sign up and start reading.
The Summer Reading Club is a national program that aims to inspire young people aged five to 16 years to keep reading throughout the school holidays.
The program has gained in popularity over the years and in 2015, 48,419 children registered and an estimated 333,275 books were read by children across Australia.
The theme for this year’s program is Superheroes and Villains, so children will be encouraged to unleash their imaginations to discover the powers and stories behind popular heroes, villains, sidekicks and more.
MidCoast Council’s libraries manager, Chris Jones, would like to thank MidCoast Water, The Gloucester Bookshop, YMCA and Keith Ainsworth for sponsoring the program and encourage local parents and their children to register.
“The Summer Reading Club is a fantastic initiative that engages young people to read over the school break through exciting books, fun online activities and great prizes,” he said.
