Summer Reading in Brisbane Libraries

Brisbane City Council libraries' Summer Reading program combines reading and library activities to help kids experience the joy of reading over the school holiday break, as well as keeping them on track for the new school year.

Council's 33 libraries will host the Summer Reading program from Saturday 12 December 2020 until Sunday 24 January 2021. It is open to children aged 12 years and younger.

By participating in the program, kids collect stickers over the summer to complete a Summer Reading pocketbook. They are eligible for a sticker (issued by a Council library staff member):

  • each time they attend an online Summer Reading event, or
  • finish reading a book.

Children who complete their pocketbook are eligible for a prize as a reward for effort.

Summer Reading events

This year, the Summer Reading program offers a range of free online school holiday events and activities including science shows, author talks, and cartoon and writing workshops.
