What is the Summer Reading Challenge?

The Summer Reading Club (SRC) is an annual library program that encourages sustained literacy, access to literature, and involvement with local libraries by children, young people and their families during the summer holidays, and aims to assist public libraries in stimulating a love of reading and building a lifelong library habit.

The SRC provides themed content and resources to enable parents, library staff and others to support the local engagement of children in an enjoyable reading program during their break from school.

Participation in the SRC allows children and young people the opportunity to:

  • ENGAGE with libraries and library collections
  • DISCOVER and develop knowledge, understanding and skills related to the annual SRC theme and
  • ENJOY reading books and participating in activities that inspire a love of reading, literature and the library habit.
This year's theme: A Roomful of Stories: Stories are everywhere, waiting to be discovered!
A Roomful of Stories celebrates the International Year of Indigenous Language (IYIL) and draws attention to the use of oral language in telling stories. Every person has a tale to tell, and the language they use to express that story is a vital component in the story-telling process, with shared emphasis on the value of both oral and written story sharing.

A Roomful of Stories will encourage children, young people and families to engage with stories and the languages in which they are told. Stories are everywhere, waiting to be discovered
