Read and win over summer! Visit any of the Logan City Council Libraries to find a great range of books to read over summer and for your chance to win. Register at your Logan City Council Library and read for your chance to win. Children can also enter the writer’s and illustrator’s competition as part of the Mayor’s Reading Challenge.
Every time you visit and borrow books from a Logan City Council Library you receive an entry into the weekly book prize draw. Read (or have read to you) your targeted number of books over the holidays, and return your completed log sheet to the library to be in the grand draw to win an iPod Nano.
Logan Libraries are taking part in the Queensland Department of Education Mayor’s Reading Challenge. The program is aimed at school aged children attending a State School in 2011 or 2012 up to grade six. All other children can enter the challenge at their local library to be in the weekly prize draws to win a book and grand prize draws to win an iPod Nano. Collect your passport at your local library or print off your reading passport at Logan reading challenge to keep track of the number of books read.
Good luck to all challengers – I look forward to reading the many entries for the Budding Writers’ Challenge and to presenting certificates to the many successful challengers across Logan City.
Best wishes, Pam Parker
