Children and teenagers can win prizes and try out a range of activities in Auckland Libraries’ latest summer reading challenge.
Level Up – Te Ara Poutama runs from now until January 28 and features two challenges – one for children aged 5 to 12 and one just for teens aged 13 to 18.
To take part, they need to log their daily reading and any activities undertaken using the Beanstack Tracker app or website (see link below), or there is a Level Up booklet available from libraries at Warkworth, Wellsford and Snells Beach. The first 4000 children to register for the challenge on Beanstack will receive a free book bag, which can be collected from libraries until January 10, or while stocks last.
Children’s activities to try include building a tower, kitchen science experiments or making a “zine” – a magazine or fanzine. Meanwhile teens can dive into pop culture, latest trends, sustainability and getting active.
Logging reading and trying activities earns badges, rewards and entries into a prize draw for a $150 summer prize pack – there is one to be won at each library.
In addition, Wellsford Library will be hosting a Level Up digital meet-up club twice a week, starting the second week of January until the programme finishes. There will also be revolving books displays, activities and competitions in the library itself.
