What is Big Summer Read?

Big Summer Read aims to slow ‘the summer slide’ of literacy levels by getting kids to read at least 10 books by completing a series of challenges.

How does it work?

Record your progress using an app called Beanstack, which rewards you with digital ‘badges’ as you reach their reading milestones.  

Once you have read the initial 10 books you are entered into the major prize pool. For every extra book you read it is another entry in your name and an extra chance to win!   

Moorabool Libraries has joined with forty-seven other public libraries in Victoria to reach the goal of engaging 10,000 children across the state to read this summer!.
