Kids, join the school holiday summer reading club and win

The District Council of Mallala library is inviting children and families to participate in its Summer Reading Club activities, taking place during the school holidays.

The Summer Reading Club is a free online and in-library holiday program, run in partnership with State Library of Queensland and the Australian Library and Information Association.

This year, the Summer Reading Club is all about adventure – dodging danger, outwitting arch nemeses and journeying beyond your wildest imagination are at the heart of this year’s club.

There are lots of activities online too, and the opportunity to win prizes. 

From an online scavenger hunt with Encyclopaedia Britannica, to word hunting and what-happens-next storywriting with Nick Earls and Terry Whidborne, there is plenty to do. 

Participants can also meet 21 of Australia’s favourite authors and illustrators online and preview their newly-released titles. The Two Wells library will be hosting a presentation party in mid-February 2015 where Mayor Duncan Kennington will be presenting children who have successfully read 10 books over the summer holidays with certificates.

Reading packs are available from the Two Wells, Mallala and Windsor Public Libraries.

Children can join in the fun at the Mallala Library Service or online at
