Children aged 5 – 12 years are invited to join our Summer Reading Club from 1 December. Register at our libraries or online from 1 December – 31 January, record your reading and enter the draw to win amazing prizes.

From real creatures to the imagined, actual to mythological, microscopic to mega-fauna, and Australia’s marvellous marsupials to all the classification of Animalia in between, this summer children are encouraged to explore and connect with a curiosity of creatures. Our libraries are jam-packed with stories to suit all reading tastes and ages. Books, zines, graphic novels… whatever the story, it all counts towards some great prizes!

From December 1 you can download the Summer Reading Club Booklet and Reading Record or pick one up when you register at any Library. Fill in your reading record and return it to any library to collect your mystery prize or go in the major prize draw!

Every ten books you read enables you to collect a MYSTERY PRIZE and go in the MAJOR prize draw. The more you read, the greater your chance to snag a fantastic prize!

Launch Party WEB.jpg Come along to our Launch Party! 

Book now for the launch of the Summer Reading Club and take part in a special performance about Mini Beasts presented by Carp Theatre.  Here you will meet a daring Daddy Long Legs, Black Boots the dancing Beetle, and a very ‘hoppy’ Grasshopper. Learn all about the mini beasts that live in your back yard and find out how they live and why they’re so important to us. By the end of the story, you’ll be mad about mini beasts, too! After the performance sign up to the Summer Reading Club, collect your activity pack and start reading.

Want more Summer Reading Club fun? Join the official Australia-wide Summer Reading Club to go into the draw for additional prizes, access activities such as book raves, writing competitions and games.

The Summer Reading Club is delivered in partnership with the State Library of Queensland and the Australian Library and Information Association.
