Welcome to the official Australian Summer Reading Club (SRC) program site.

Engagement with libraries is central to the SRC program. Funding and resource contributions from the Australian Public Libraries Alliance (APLA) enables the annual creation and delivery of a themed SRC program and resources for use by Australian public libraries.

APLA’s continued commitment to the delivery of this national, highly successful literacy campaign encourages libraries to use their library spaces, resources and collections to enrich the lives of children, young people and families; engage, connect, inform and inspire a love of recreational reading and the library habit; and places libraries as ‘active connectors’ in building literacy, language and learning in their communities.

The Summer Reading Club program is delivered annually in libraries and online from 1 December 31 January.

The programming theme for 2017 is Game On.

Library registrations for the 2017 program are now open.

Your participation in the Australian Summer Reading Club allows children and young people to develop a sense of community with other children across the country. No matter where they are during the summer holidays, it is envisioned that children and young people will be able to participate in activities aligned to the annual programming theme, discover great Australian authors and illustrators, and share their voice by engaging in literary and creative activities, both online and in libraries.
