2018 SRC Library Display Competition

Last year, 20 libraries entered the Summer Reading Club library display competition, providing a small peek into what the SRC looks like in libraries across the country.

This year we invite you to put your creativity on display by entering your display/library activities against one of these 5 categories:

  • The Space Activation Award – to be awarded to the library whose space creatively embodies the SRC theme and is appealing to the interest of children, young people and families
  • The Collections Based Award – to be awarded to the library whose display best incorporated collections connected to the SRC theme
  • Staff Enthusiasm/Engagement Award – to be awarded to the library whose staff creatively get on board with the SRC theme and extend this through social media
  • Community Engagement Award – to be awarded to the library whose evolving display best engaged the community throughout the summer holidays
  • Library Outreach Award – to be awarded to the library whose narrative best described their outreach within their community (schools, shopping centres, off-site activities)

How did you transform your spaces and holidays in places of discovery and curious creatures?

All entries must be received by Friday, 1 March, 2019.

Send an email to the SRC Team with your pictures, video links and a short narrative detailing:

  • budget
  • number of staff/volunteers involved
  • hours expended
  • your motivation
  • the category you would like to enter under
  • and your library Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter address page (if you have one)

We also encourage you to continue to post the outcomes of the SRC in your libraries on all your favourite social media platforms (#summerreadingclub), including the SRC Champions facebook group, to share and show with our growing SRC Community how Australian libraries do the SRC!
