The Summer Stars reading programme is running in public libraries throughout the country this summer. Summer Stars is a free programme, open to all children.
Each child who registers for the programme at their local library joins in the fun of reading lots of exciting books during the summer. Children will receive their own Summer Stars Reading Card to record their progress and the Summer Stars Reward Stamp will be added to their card at the library for each book read. Fun rewards will be provided along the way. At the end of the programme, all children who have participated will be invited to attend an awards event.
If you haven't already signed up for Summer Stars in dlr Libraries, there is still plenty of time. Sign up in any dlr Library and get your colourful Summer Stars Reading Card. Every time you read a book and return it to the library you get your card stamped and once you collect 6 stamps you can post your reading card into the prize draw boxes in any dlr library.
