Be the Hero. Be the Villain. Unleash your imagination at North Burnett Libraries this summer!

Dec 15, 2016 | Front Page Feature, News

North Burnett Libraries invites children and families to discover heroes, villains, sidekicks and more by participating in the Summer Reading Club this school holidays. 

The Summer Reading Club is a free online and in-library holiday program, run in partnership with State Library of Queensland, the Australian Library and Information Association, and the Australian Public Library Alliance.

This year, the Summer Reading Club is all about exploring the themes and conventions associated with super and everyday heroes, and their villainous counterparts. Young readers will be encouraged to engage with a variety of traditional and non-traditional heroes and heroines by exploring a variety of genres and participating in local program activities.

The fun continues online with plenty of opportunities to keep young readers inspired throughout the holidays, and with great prizes up for grabs! Blog with Australian Children’s Laureate, Leigh Hobbs and popular children’s author, Deborah Abela, search for answers to Encyclopaedia Britannica’s sponsored quiz, craft a What Happens Next story ending to Mick Elliot’s story starter, share your book raves and artwork, and lots more.

Summer Reading Club members can also meet 21 new Australian authors and illustrators online, read their helpful creative hints and tips and preview their newly released titles.

The Summer Reading Club is delivered nationally, giving participants the opportunity to connect with reader’s right across the country. Last year over 48,000 Australian children registered for the Summer Reading Club and collectively read more than 333,000 books.

Registration is FREE! When participants register at our libraries (Biggenden, Eidsvold, Gayndah, Monto, Mundubbera or Mt Perry) they will receive a FREE Summer Reading Club pack.

The fun starts from 1 December 2016 to 31 January 2017 at your local library or visit the Summer Reading Club website here.
