The Summer Reading Club Challenge theme this year is Tales of Wonder and young people and families are encouraged to explore the wonders of stories, from myths and legends to fairytales and real life heroes, by joining the challenge.

“The Summer Reading Club is a great way for kids to maintain their reading levels over the long summer holidays,” explained Chris Jones, MidCoast Council’s Libraries Manager.

The program is aimed at children aged 0-16 years and helping them to maintain reading throughout the summer holidays, with the chance to win some great prizes along the way.

This year the SRC Challenge will be run through ‘Beanstack’, a free online service that offers an innovative new way to connect readers of all ages with books, engaging reading activities and challenges.

It includes book and activity logging, badges and registration for all members of the family under one account, or parents can create accounts just for their children.

This year participants will receive some great prizes as part of the program, all thanks to the program partners State Library of Queensland, Mission Australia, MidCoast 4 Kids and Council’s Waste Education Team.

“The benefits of reading are endless and it’s hoped that this challenge will encourage some non-readers to pick up a book at home, and others to keep it up over their break,” added Chris.

Families are encouraged to head to or visit their library for details on how to participate in the Summer Reading Club Challenge.

The challenge finishes on 31 January 2021.
