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.

2017/18 iRead registrations begin on Monday the 4th of December at your local library.

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. This summer we are running an on-line fan fiction competition from the 11th of December through to the 19th of January.

 

From Christmas the Napier Library iRead Programme will be at the MTG Hawkes Bay

MTGThe Napier Library will soon be moving to a temporary location at MTG Hawke’s Bay (1 Tennyson Street).

Napier Library will be closed from 12 noon, 22nd December 2017 to 7th February 2018 to complete this move. The Taradale Library will operate as normal during this time.

This is how it affects the children’s and teens’ summer programmes 2017-2018…

iRead participants can report-in to Napier Library as usual until the 22nd of December.

On Wednesday the 27th of December the Napier Library Summer Reading programme will begin running at MTG Hawke’s Bay. For the rest of the summer Jessie and Matthew will be available to talk to iRead participants at the usual times in the education room of the museum.
