Mayor's Reading Challenge


Frankston City Libraries invites children aged 0-5 years and their families to get involved with this year’s Mayor’s Reading Challenge.

In its eleventh year, the Mayor’s Reading Challenge supports early literacy development, by encouraging parents and carers to engage in regular reading experiences with their children in a fun and rewarding way.

The Mayor’s Reading Challenge is a great opportunity to read to kids and collect pretty cool prizes along the way. Everyone who completes the challenge of 60 books receives a free book and goes into the draw to win one of the major prizes.

The books read in your regular Storytime sessions with Kerry, Monica and Bev all count towards the Challenge, as do any of the books you enjoy via Story Box Library or Tumblebooks.

The Mayor’s Reading Challenge runs throughout August and you can register via the form below and download this year’s reading record. You can also collect a reading record from Frankston, Seaford or Carrum Downs libraries or the Council Customer Service Centre at Langwarrin, if you don’t have a printer at home.

Please note: Our challenge has extended to Tuesday 14 September. The major prizes will be drawn on Friday 17 September.
