General Programme Information

The Summer Reading Programme is back at the Living Room of the City! Our popular E .C. Read’n Summer Reading Programme is returning for its 24th year!

This programme promotes the enjoyment of reading for children aged 4 – 10 years over Summer for readers of all abilities. Our team will assist participating children with their reading and encourage them to talk about what they have read when they report in. We also provide assistance to parents and families in what services the library has to offer them. Children in the programme will earn rewards as they progress and if they complete four report-ins they get to attend our celebratory party with their families.

E.C Read’n Summer Reading Programme starts Monday 30 November (except for Te Pātikitiki which starts a week earlier), and finishes with the finale on Thursday 21 January.

iRead (Intermediate Reading Programme for children aged 11-13 years) – starts the 2nd week of December

Due to demand to be on the programme, all places are allocated through a ballot process.

We are extremely grateful to the Eastern and Central Community Trust for funding this programme.
