Join the sun-sational summer safari
Here’s one for children looking for an adventure these school holidays.
Hutt City Libraries’ summer safari reading club offers adventure, fun and prizes while encouraging children to continue reading during their holidays.
"Studies show children can improve their reading skills by taking part in a programme like summer safari as it gives them a head start over their peers who need to adjust back to reading when they return to school ... and of course they have a lot of fun," says libraries manager Sandra Mann.
Children aged 5-12 can join the club at any Hutt City library from 16 December and receive a gameboard to fill in as they read. Once complete participants will get a ticket to the grand finale adventure party at a mystery location.
Children need to be a library member to join the reading club. It’s easy and free to join the library.
"The grand finale is sure to be a hit with both children and their parents as we have loads of action, games and entertainment"
