The Summer Reading Quest is here…

Summer Reading Quest is coming…running 1 December to 29 February 2024

The Summer Reading Quest is a great way to promote reading for joy, reading over the summer, and to find new and fun way to bring literacy into your everyday lives.

Want to be in it? Come down to one of the Cockburn libraries branches: Coolbellup, Spearwood, or Success and tell us how old you are…why? because children under five are doing the Summer Steps Card and children over five are completing the Summer Reading Quest Booklet.

This year, we encourage you to also register, this will provide reminders about when to pop into the library to collect your monthly participation prize and when you can start entering your data for the state-wide prize draws.

Under 5 years

Collect your Summer Steps and complete the squares. There are letters at the bottom of each square representing the three months of summer so you can keep using the card all summer. 

Ages 5+

Record in your SRQ Booklet how long you read each day in December to February for the chance to win great prizes!

Pop into the library each month for a prize. 

Prizes

In February, you’ll be asked to go to the website and fill in details of your journey: number of minutes read, steps completed, etc. This will put you in with a chance to win some state-wide prizes. But we, at Cockburn Libraries, couldn’t stop there.

Cockburn Competition

Once you’ve put in your info in the state-wide competition, come into Cockburn Libraries and give us your entry card. This will put you into the Cockburn only draw. You do need to be a member to win.

We have four prizes (each is a $50 Booktopia voucher):

  • Most minutes read
  • Lucky drawer for the Summer Reading Quest Booklet
  • Two lucky draws for the summer Steps

Make sure you’ve put your stats in for the state-wide prizes and then drop your card off at your local
