FRANKSTON Library’s summer reading challenge is underway.

The library will send out records for challenge participants to fill in. Those who complete the required hours for their age group will go in the running for prizes.

Frankston City Libraries manager Tammy Beauchamp said it is “important kids continued to read over the summer break, to maintain their skills and interest in reading.”

“At Frankston City Libraries we’re committed to improving literacy skills in our community and this program is a great example of how we’re making reading fun,” she said. “Frankston City’s Summer Reading Challenge also encourages young people of all ages to explore our library’s apps and branches, and to spend time with family. Reading is a great way to chill out and relax this summer.”

The reading challenge records must be returned to the Frankston, Seaford, Langwarrin or Carrum Downs libraries by the end of January.
