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 11 December 2021 until Sunday 23 January 2022. 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 adventure journal. They are eligible for a sticker (issued by a Council library staff member):

  • each time they attend a Summer Reading event at a Council library, or
  • finish reading a book; or
  • complete a reading challenge.

Children who complete their Summer Reading adventure journal are eligible for a prize as a reward for effort.
