Summer Reading Club
Summer Readings Club
It’s not too late to join this year’s Summer Reading Club!

For over 11 years Coffs Harbour Libraries have been running the Summer Reading Club to encourage children to continue reading through the school holidays.

The theme for this year’s Summer Reading Club 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.

For more information go to the Library’s Website
