East Gippsland Shire Summer Reading

Last year the Summer Reading Club was a huge success!

  • Over 43,000 children participated across Australia, and
  • more than 360,000 books were read.

Celebrating its eighth year as a national program, the Summer Reading Club could be even bigger and better this year.  The theme for the 2018 Summer Reading Club is Curious Creatures. Young readers will be encouraged to explore new worlds as they develop a curiosity of creatures.


At East Gippsland Shire Library, Summer Reading Club activities will run from Saturday 1 December 2018 to Thursday 31 January 2019.


Registration is FREE! When participants register at our library they will receive a reading log which allows them to collect small prizes as they read. Alternatively, they can also register through the Summer Reading Club website at   National prizes are also up for grabs for those who participate in the online activities.
