Teens invited to read and win at their local library
  • Tuesday 25 June 2013

Local teens are invited to head to their local Sunshine Coast Council library to read and go in the draw to win some fantastic prizes in the teenREADmonth promotion in July.

The teenREADmonth campaign, now in its third year, is open to teens aged 12 to 18 years old and it takes a few easy steps to participate.

Teens need to be a member of Sunshine Coast Libraries and register online or in person at their local library. When teens read five items - which can be a book, magazine, ebook, graphic novel or manga - and complete a reading log they can then choose from four great prize packs.

This year there are even more ways to read your favourite things with the library now stocking a large range of eBooks and eMagazines.

Prizes include $50 vouchers to be redeemed in local stores to purchase books, sports gear, electronics or crafts. If you are a bookworm you will be rewarded for your passion - the more you read, the more logs you fill out and the more chances you have to win.

Thanks to the partnership with Voices on the Coast Youth Literature Festival, there is also a prize for schools. Entrants simply nominate their school to be in the running to win a big box of books donated by Voices on the Coast for their school library.

teenREADmonth officially opens today, Monday 24 June and closes Wednesday 31 July at 5pm with the winners being announced on Tuesday 6 August 2013.
