School holiday programmes
The S.T.A.R.S programme was developed in-house by our library teams especially for South Waikato children. The libraries run a number of fun and exciting S.T.A.R.S activities across the district during the school holiday breaks.
The activities are suited to children aged 4 – 11, and no registration is needed to attend these, just turn up.
See the South Waikato Libraries Facebook page, or contact your nearest library for more information.
Summer S.T.A.R.S is our annual summer reading programme, and it’s:
- easy to join
- open to all children across the South Waikato aged 4 – 11 years
- simple to complete
- and so much fun to do!
Participants need to register for this programme, and places are limited and assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
Once registered, children read a minimum of 5 library books over the season.
Tamariki come into the library to report on and discuss what they have read. Each report earns an incentive and a token for the end of year prize draw.
Reap the Rewards
A finale party is held at the end of the programme to celebrate the achievements with kai, entertainment and prizegiving.
Remember . . .
Summer S.T.A.R.S registrations generally open early in December. Please contact libraries for specific dates and programme terms and conditions.
