Every summer Napier Teens (from 11 years up) may participate in iRead, a summer reading programme designed to be more individually-driven than the children's one.
Participants are given a review booklet to keep track of their reading throughout the holidays. As they read they write reviews, as briefly or as fully as they like. After completing three reviews they visit the library and are allowed to pick a brand-new book from among our varied selection of holiday programme prize books. Participants can earn two books in any one week, and these are to keep, a reward for the reader’s work and an incentive to keep reading.
Through the summer we also hold events for participants.
