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 15 December 2018 until Sunday 27 January 2019. 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 pocket book. They are eligible for a sticker (issued by a Council library staff member):

  • each time they attend a Summer Reading event; or
  • finish reading a book

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

Summer Reading events

The Summer Reading program offers a range of school holiday events and activities including live performances, science shows and cartoon and writing workshops.
