Summer is here and that means school holidays will soon begin.

But that doesn’t have to mean that children have to be bored or miss out on important educational opportunities.

Not with the Dubbo Macquarie Regional Library’s Summer Reading Club program.

Launch on Thursday, December 1, the Summer Reading Club gives children the chance to read an abundance of books, and in doing so will be rewarded for their efforts.

The launch at the local library saw kids playing a variety of educational and fun games, and getting the chance to have a story read to them.

The Summer Reading Club is delivered nationally, giving participants the opportunity to connect with reader’s right across the country.

Last year over 48,000 Australian children registered for the Summer Reading Club and collectively read more than 333,000 books.

Those interested in participating in the Summer Reading Club can still join, just head to the Dubbo Library.
