Reading incentive closing

AN ANNUAL program designed to encourage young library patrons to read more over the school holidays will soon come to a close.

Tourism and Libraries Committee chairman David Pahlke said the Ipswich Library and Information Service's Summer Reading Program would finish on January 21.

“If parents want to encourage their children, from toddlers to teenagers, to read and participate in literacy-based activities that stimulate their minds and imagi- nation, then this program would be a great start,” Cr Pahlke said.

“All participants who have submitted six book reviews by the closing date receive a certificate and invitation to the special presentation on February 5 for the chance to win one of the major prizes that are offered in the various categories.”
