Do you want to attend a heroes and villains party? If you join the Parkes Shire Library’s annual Summer Reading Club and help all members to complete the mission of reading 888 books this summer, you are invited. At the party library staff will perform wacky challenges voted for by the members, only if members complete the mission!
The club is free and open to all children from birth to 17 years of age. Anything that you enjoy can be read: books, magazines, newspapers, comics and listening to stories on CD or online. For all children, especially the very young, having a story read to you counts too. “We love throwing out a good challenge to our Shire kids and are confident over 888 books will be read. The Library team are all wondering what crazy challenges we will have to do at the graduation party. Maybe we will have to wear our clothes inside out or be wrapped up in toilet paper like a mummy
by the members,” said Library Officer Sandie Ward.
If you can’t decide what to read Library staff will happily provide some suggestions and help you find a new author or series. Visit Parkes, Trundle, Peak Hill or Tullamore Library to join. You will be given your heroes and villains mission kit, instructions and reading log to complete. The challenge concludes on Tuesday, 31st January 2017.
