The Amazing Read - Summer Reading Programme

This is a fun, free programme run over summer for kids aged 5-10 years. Children read library books, tell library staff about their books, and receive a small prize! This is a great way to keep kids reading over summer (which helps children return to school without a drop in their reading level). 

Enrolments begin at 9.30am on Friday, 7 December at all Tauranga City Libraries.
Come in and see us or call 577 7177 for more information.

Summer Reading for Tweens & Teens!

This year we are trying something a little different, with separate reading programmes for tweens and teens!

Tween Reads

This is a free summer reading programme for tweens aged 10-14. Tweens are given a fun booklet to complete by reading library books and writing simple reviews. You can earn one free book for every three books you read and review, plus there are awesome spot prizes to be won and a finale party for those who complete the programme! 

Enrolments begin 9.30am on Friday, 7 December at all Tauranga City Libraries.
Come in and see us or call 577 7177 for more information.

Teen Reads

This is a new programme for teens aged 14-18. Teen Reads bookmarks will be available at our libraries all summer long. Teens simply check out and read four library items, get their bookmark stamped by a librarian before returning their items, then go into the draw to win a $150 Prezzy card + bonus prizes!

If you’re 14 years old or older, you can choose to enter the Tween Reads programme or the Teen Reads programme (you can’t enter both).
