Palmy Kids Read NZ’s Best

There’s more fun to be had this July with our new reading challenge for kids – Palmy Kids Read NZ’s Best!

We love the finalists of the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults so much, we decided that a new Reading Challenge was in order. The challenge is for Tamariki and Rangatahi aged 4 to 19.

To complete the challenge you have to:

  • read at least one book,
  • write at least one book review, plus
  • earn any other four badges of your choice.

The challenge uses the Library’s online platform Beanstack for monitoring and encouraging reading. Join up and log your reading to earn virtual badges.

The Challenge kicks off on Friday 8 July (right at the start of the school holidays!) and finishes on Friday 12 August, following the book awards ceremony on Wednesday 10th¬†when the winning books are announced. Will you read a winner? Join up here and we’ll see!

OR Download Beanstack from the Apple app store or Google Play Store.
