Summer Reading Club

A Summer Reading Club is taking place at East Gippsland Shire Library these summer holidays.

Last year the Summer Reading Club was a huge success!

  • Over 55,000 children participated across Australia, and
  • More than 450,000 books were read.


The theme for the 2017 Summer Reading Club is GAME ON.  At East Gippsland Shire Library, Summer Reading Club activities will run from Friday 1 December 2017 to Wednesday 31 January 2018. Registration is free.  When participants register at the 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.


Reading logs and registration forms are now available from the office, or from any East Gippsland Shire Library.  For more information on this year’s Summer Reading Club, please contact Jane Wembridge on 5152 4225 or by email to
