Murchison Library: Summer Road Trip Reading Adventure

Monday 16th December 2019-Friday 31st January 2020

Tour the South Island-Te Wai Pounamu on our Summer Road Trip Reading Adventure!

Help us drive our library camper van around the South Island this summer! Every book you read moves the camper van another 30 kilometres along.

This reading adventure is for young readers aged 5-11. It’s really easy to get involved. Simply pick up a Summer Road Trip Reading Adventure log from your local Tasman district library, and get started reading.

It’s totally free to join, there’s no registration involved, and there are great rewards to keep young readers motivated.

After recording your first five books in your reading log, you get a free activity booklet. After ten, you can choose a free book to keep!*

Each library will host a finale event for Road Trip readers who have completed the challenge. We’ll enjoy refreshments, present completion badges and have a prize draw.


*Maximum two books per child.
