What is the Summer Reading Challenge?

The Shire of Dardanup Summer Reading Challenge encourages eager young readers to discover new stories while maintaining their literacy over the school holidays.

Through Shire of Dardanup Library Services, they can explore a world of adventures with a range of challenges and activities available in our libraries and online. There will be give-aways, prizes, and activities to keep kids reading throughout school holidays so register now.

Last year over 60 young readers registered for the Summer Reading Challenge at Shire of Dardanup Library Services. Our participants read more than 250 books for more than 225 hours!

This year we are expecting even bigger numbers!
