Gold Star and Little Stars Reading Club programs
Brisbane City Council runs the Gold Star and Little Stars Reading Club programs each year between May and July. The Gold Star Reading Club program is for children aged six-12 years. The Little Stars Reading Club program is for children aged zero-five years and their carers. The program closed on 31 July 2018 and will re-open in May 2019.
Children who participated in the July 2018 reading programs can visit their local library to collect their prize for finishing.
Some of the yearly program benefits include:
- free membership
- helping children improve their reading and literacy skills
- rewarding children for reading with monthly incentive prizes
- the opportunity for participants to enter the monthly draw to win a $25 book voucher
- children having fun sharing their reading experiences with family and friends.
How the programs work
Children can collect twelve gold stars and monthly incentives by:
- reading a minimum of three books of their choice each month
- completing a series of activities
- recording the details in their activity book.
Children who collect all twelve gold stars are eligible to:
- enter the major prize draw to win a $200 book voucher for themselves (Gold Star Reading Club and Little Stars Reading Club members)
- enter the draw for their school (Gold Star Reading Club members only)
- receive a medallion and a certificate of achievement
- attend their local awards ceremony with their family.
