1st December 2019 to 29th February 2020


There are three elements to the Summer Reading Challenge.  The first relates to the maze on the cover of the PASSPORT in which you purchase books from Beaufort Street Books and get a stamp each time you do.  There are only twelve steps to the maze with prizes to be won every third book you purchase. Weave your way around the maze and once you complete it, you will go into the draw to win over $100 worth of books. There are actually three different age groups and a major prize available for each of those groups. 

The second element relates to the inside pages of the PASSPORT where you record every book you read - the ones you have purchased from us during the challange but also the ones you may have at home that you read, borrow from a friend, borrow from the library, receive for Christmas etc, basically everything you read over the Summer from 1st December 2019 to 29th February 2020.

The third element relates to the back page where you can choose to have family and friends sponsor you for the number of books you read, to raise money for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
