Summer Reading Club 2010

Wednesday, 17th February 2010. We completed another successful Summer Reading Club with the presentation of prizes.
During the recent school holidays 1055 children across the Shire registered for the Reading Club and between them read almost 13,000 books.

This was a terrific result.
Thirty prize winners received books and vouchers donated by our sponsors.
Three lucky children won major prizes. For the young ones, 0-4, a library bag of books, DVDs and CDs. For those aged 5-8 years, a digital camera, and for 9 - 12 year olds, an Ipod Nano.
All this would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors, in particular,
The Tradies.

The excited winners were presented with their prizes by The Mayor, Councillor Lorraine Kellyand Mr Graham Hill, president of The Tradies.
We would like to thank all our sponsors: The Tradies; Sutherland Shire Leisure Centres; AES Library Supplies; Bloomin' Books, Caringbah; Sydney Tramway Museum; Hazelhurst Regional Gallery; Child's Play Australia; The National Maritime Museum; The Ridge Golf Course and Driving Range.

The Teen Summer Reading Club presentation was also held on the same day. An amazing 974 books were read by the 111 teens who participated during the school holidays. Books, Gift Vouchers and Ridge Golf Course vouchers were given away weekly.
The major prize of an IPOD Nano was given away at our presentation on 17 February.
It was great to see so many of our teens reading throughout the holidays.
