COVID-19 has left its mark on most things, including this year’s school holiday Summer Reading Challenge celebration.
The challenge required participants to read at least 10 books throughout the summer school holidays, and usually culminates in a celebration at the Two Wells Public Library, where those who took part would receive a book prize, certificate and share afternoon tea.
This year’s event was a little different, with 39 people completing the challenge, but having to forego the group celebration.
Instead, participants were invited to drop into the library at their leisure, where they could collect a certificate of participation signed by Adelaide Plains Council mayor, Mark Wasley.
They also received an age-appropriate book prize, and a secret prize, which was revealed as a voucher for a sweet treat from the local bakery.
