Every year, Libraries Tasmania delivers a vibrant, interactive summer reading program to encourage children to continue reading over the school holidays.


Dave chats with Alice Imlach from Libraries Tasmania about this years theme.

This year, all 46 Libraries Tasmania sites – from Geeveston to Currie to Queenstown and everywhere in between – are excited to be offering a new reading program: the Libraries Tasmania Summer Read Around.

From Monday 4 January, children can pick up a “Read Around… Tasmania” kit at their local library. The kit encourages them to ‘read around Tasmania’ – following a map from library to library – be entertained by other word-based activities, and register to win one of ten $50.00 book vouchers.
