Summer Reading Club
Join the Summer Reading Club today!
Our children’s Summer Reading Club is on again!

The theme for this year’s Summer Reading Club (SRC) is “Heroes and Villains” and we’re encouraging all school-aged children (including those starting Kindergarten in 2017) to join in the fun.

Children can participate by joining online or, by calling in to Coffs Harbour, Toormina or Woolgoolga libraries. All members will receive a kit containing summer reading ideas, a reading log and fun activities.

Visit the library website for more information on the Summer Reading Club.
