Anakin, 11 NSW
My brothers and I did it last year and I had lots of fun and I also won a three months subscription to “Intreprica” and that was really fun to do and my brothers didnt win that so thats even better.
Zendai, 5 NSW
I would like the end party a little later on as I missed it last year cause I was away and I will miss it again this year too. Its really good otherwise.
Xavier, 8 NSW
My favourite activity is the colouring pages.
Toby, 7 NSW
I just wanted to say how great this years SRC is set up. It looks wonderful and has some great looking activities that my kids are going to love including my pre-preschooler. Well done!!!

Our kids loved the wrist bands and the online activities!
Kristie, 35 VIC
I like reading!
Julia, 9 VIC

Lola, 7 VIC
This website is a good management to let people write, read and be apart of all the fun everyone else who has come apart of it have fun.
Nadia, 7 VIC
Lorenzo, 5, of SA, is a self-confessed bookworm! We love the Summer Reading Club
Laura, Lorenzo’s mum SA
I found out about the SRC through the people at the Mildura library. I can’t choose my favourite activity because they are all so good! If I were telling my best friend about the SRC, I would you say “you have to join the summer reading book club!” P.S. I think you should make an all year round book club!
Ana, 11 VIC
The summer reading club activity booklet is very interesting. I like the dot-to-dot!
Vunze, 8 NSW
I found out about the SRC by a librarian giving me a sheet of paper saying to enter the registration competition and join in the SRC fun! My favourite activity was doing the fairy tale crosswords in the booklet and solving puzzles. I think the Summer Reading Club is a great way to get children to read more books during the holidays and you can have loads of fun winning prizes and doing many activities in the booklet!
The SRC is a good opportunity for me to read lots of books and have fun!
Evian, 13 VIC
I like learning about authors and finding out good books as I am a bookworm.
I found out about the SRC my local library after paying a visit. I liked the animation editor because it was a good challenge and it let me create really cool masterpieces! If I were telling my best friend about the SRC I would try my hardest to get them to try it and tell them about all of the GREAT prize opportunities you have!
Lucy, 13 VIC
I liked solving the mystery clues in Rapunzle’s hair at the library today, playing the games on this website, reading loads of books and colouring in my pictures in the activity pack! The Summer Reading Club is great fun! I wish there were more mysteries to solve in the library like the book clue mystery one!
Lorenzo, 5 SA
The activity booklets are fantastic. It’s fantastic watching my kids especially my 8yr old son (who struggles to read) motivated to read books so he can earn his next reward. The SRC is a fantastic program that keeps the kids thinking all holidays. They kids are really enjoying all the activities both physically and online.
Tracey, 34 NSW
In 3 day’s I’ve read 5 books and my favourite character is The Rainbow Queen from Seahorse Stars by Zuzu Singer.
Pi, 6 NSW
I like relaxing and reading great books, especially by Tom Gates.
Marcus, 8 VIC
I love everything about the SRC!
Ashly, 10 VIC
I liked drawing the picture of me reading after we read some stories. The website has lots of things do and good things for mum or dad to help you read. And the pictures are great! I like the theme of fairytales because they are for all children of any age.
Tristan, 5 SA
I liked finishing the story of Hansel and Gretel. In our library (Gawler) they have set up a vine of tangled leaves with questions to do. You also can come home and use the website so they connect with each other and its learning. There are lots of activities to do on the website. Each time I go to the website with mum we find an activity to do or stories to read.
Dean, 7 SA
I found out about the SRC through the library when it first started in 2006 December holidays. I’ve been doing it ever since. My favourite activity was having the opportunity to read 10 books in a certain amount of time. I see it as a goal achieved to do that every time it’s on. The SRC is a good opportunity to sit down, relax and have a read!
Julia, 12 QLD
I joined the SRC because a librarian asked me if I wanted to enter and I said yes! My favourite activity is reading! If I were telling my best friend about the SRC, I would say, “Do you know about the summer reading club? It’s awesome! Kinda like the Premiers Reading Challenge. And if you win, you get an iPod touch!”
P.S. I think you are doing great!
Rose, 11 NSW
My favourite activity of this year’s SRC was writing the Untangled Tales and drawing your own pictures because I love doing both of them. The SRC is really cool and you can get prizes. It is a great way to meet new people. I have done the SRC for three years!
Emily, 10 NSW
We have enjoyed looking at your website and reading fairy tales during the holidays.
Kirralee, Melody’s mum SA
I found out about the SRC through the Cowra Library in NSW. My favourite activities are the Games and the Gallery! You should join up so you can play games and learn about books.
Philippa, 7 NSW
I found about the SRC when we went to the library. My sister and I saw some posters and we told our mum about it. My favourite activity was the search word. I think having a summer reading club is great because people who love reading can join and have fun.
Christabelle Adina, 7 NSW
The SRC is the best way to pass summer!
Mindo, 36 SA
The SRC is really fun because it helps us with our reading and is great fun with the activities. I like reading books and colouring the word search and drawing the monsters.
The SRC is good for the holidays because there is normally nothing to do on the holidays.
Kushpreet Kaur, 10 VIC
I found out about the SRC because my local library told me!
Chloe, 10 SA
I found out about the SRC from a volunteer working at my local library and being encouraged by my librarian. My favourite activity was the writing competitions and reading so many amazing book that were recommended to me. The SRC is fun and educational.
You haven’t lived till you’ve done the SRC!
Amber, 13 ACT
I love reading the books! You should all join it with me next year! It is soo much fun!!!!!!! I love it!!!!
Ellyse, 9 VIC
I’ve been doing the SRC for a while. I like reading all the Alex Rider series and Cherub series and journeying on to Henderson’s Boys.
The SRC is cool because you get crazy prizes for reading. And you get to do this in the holidays.
One last thought, where’s the Autumn Reading challenge? Winter? And Spring? I demand more! Oh and make it 30 books to read.10 books is too mainstream.
P.S I don’t mind 50. 50 books would be good!
My mum recommended the SRC to me. My favourite activity has definitely been the writing competitions. I LOVE writing!
If I were telling my best friend about the SRC I would you say, “I found this awesome website and it has lots of fun activities. And there is heaps of prizes up for grabs!
P.S. I LOVE Harry Potter! J K Rowling is AMAZING!
Hannah, 12 NSW
My favourite activity was the bingo and I hope there are more bingo games!
Wendy, 10 NSW
I found out about the SRC while I was visiting the library to borrow some books for the holidays. My librarian suggested that my brothers and I sign up for the Summer Reading Club.
Jenai, 13 VIC
My favourite SRC activities are the reading and the website games!
The SRC has great competitions to do and there are so many activities – I should know, I have done it for 5 years in a row! It has helped me to grow my love of reading to the MAX
Keep doing the SRC!
Amy, 14 SA
The SRC is good! I found out about it at my library!
Jordan, 16 VIC
I like reading books and writing about them! You should join the reading club and read lots of books! I think reading and typing review is fun.
Jemima, 6 SA
I found out about the SRC from the State Library of Qld! I really enjoyed making the chatter-box in the activity book.
The SRC is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m looking forward to next year’s club!
Ash, 8 QLD
Thankyou! I love the website! xo
Hannah, 11 VIC
Just a lot of thanks! It is really nice that you take so much effort in the development of children and developing their interest in books.
Rashmi, 32 NSW
I loved our Summer Reading Club Party! And doing the Activity Books!
The SRC is a great chance to relax and enjoy your holidays and reading at the same time and after you have a party with your library it is a great chance to find new books to read in the coming year or to share what you read.
Lauren, 11 NSW
I found about the Summer Reading Club from my local library 6 days before school goes back. Although I haven’t have time to do many of the activities yet the Cinderella game was fun and challenging.
You should definitely get online and check it out the SRC! It is really cool and totally worth while!
Evie, 13 NSW
I found out about the SRC through the internet. I liked all of the activities cause it was kind a fun doing it when your bored and also when your not. I think everyone should check out the online SRC. It’s awesome! You could go on competitions and read lots of cool stuff. You have to try it so cool! Great work!!
Shahasadi, 11 NSW
I found out about this year’s SRC because my local library had posters and I always enter for the fun of it. My favourite activity is the reading log because when you finish it you feel really proud of yourself.
The SRC is a great way to enjoy learning about books and doing the activities. And I love the themes. The SRC is a fantastic way to get kids reading I think it is a great idea.
Jade, 11 NSW
I saw the big poster at the library advertising the SRC. I love reading books!
Daniel, 9 VIC
I found out about the SRC on a library visit. My favourite activities were the party and competitions on this site.The SRC is excellent and helps make you start reading. It also helps your writing and literacy skills. Most importantly it is so much fun.
I also want to say that if I asked a question replying was always quick and reliable. The SRC is great all over, couldn’t change a thing!
Blake, 7 NSW
I went to the Ashfield Library on the holidays and saw a SRC poster on the wall. I liked the Activity Book and so did my little brother and sister. We each completed an Untangled Tales reading log from books we borrowed over four weeks.
I will tell my friends that I participated in the SRC over the holidays. They will probably think I am talking about the Student Representative Council but I will tell them it’s the Summer Reading Club.
When I was younger I would avoid reading because I thought it was hard but now I think its fun. Today I am reading Meet Letty, Our Australian Girl. It’s perfect for today because it’s Australia Day. Happy Reading Australia!!!!
Nicholas, 9 NSW
I found out about the reading club when we went into the library over the holidays. I always ask mum to take me and Daniel, my brother, to the library as I want to borrow lots of books. Reading has helped me with my learning at school. I love reading and being read to by mum and dad.
Jasmine, 6 VIC
Thank you for this great program-it keeps our kids reading over the long 7.5 week Christmas holidays.
