Summer Adult Reading Challenge - Book Bingo

Our Libraries are running an Adult Reading Challenge this year in addition to the reading challenge for the kids. Pick up your #bookbingo entry form at any CODC Library or download it below. All those who complete a Bingo line (or a Blackout!) go in the draw to win a book pack kindly donated by Alexandra Paper Plus.

We encourage you to use #bookbingo and #codclibraries if you post about any great books you ​discover too.



Children's Summer Reading Challenge  - The Big Friendly Read

​The Big Friendly Read celebrates the centenary of Roald Dahl's birth. Set your personal goal to read over the summer holidays - maybe your height or taller in books! Give yourself a giant goal!  

Register for the summer reading challenge at any Central Otago district library and pick up your summer reading log. Children of any age can sign up/be signed up. Younger children can have their parents/guardians record what books they get read to them or read together.  ​
