Summer Reading Club ‘Your Adventure Awaits’

Summer Reading Club 2022

What is the Summer Reading Club?

The Summer Reading Club (SRC) is a FREE program that encourages kids to read, play and try out new things during the school holidays. Every child that registers gets a FREE sign-up pack. There are prizes to be won and lots of fun to be had. 

How can my child get involved?

Register your child to the SRC at any Kempsey Shire Library branch. They will need to have their own library card. If they don't yet have their own library card, getting one is easy. Simply bring your photo ID into your local branch and the lovely library team will do the rest. 

If your child already has a library card (or if you have signed up for previous Summer Reading Club challenges), you can also sign up on the Beanstack Tracker app. All the instructions on how to complete the challenges online are listed on the app.

Every book, comic, graphic novel and eBook that is read (or read aloud to them) is logged on their Reading Record - either on the Beanstack app, or on the paper form in the sign-up pack. Once they've read 10 items they go in the running to win wonderful prizes. Members using the Beanstack app are automatically entered into the prize draw, while those filling in the paper form must hand it in to your local library to be entered.

Every SRC entrant that reads 10+ books will be invited to the Wrap Up Party at Kempsey Majestic Cinemas on Saturday 4th February, 2023.
