iRead is an incentive based reading programme for intermediate aged children, held over the summer holidays.

On registration participants are supplied with a review booklet. Library staff check the review and record details on their registration form. It is preferable books read and reviewed are borrowed from the library.

iRead is designed to reward participants after they have read and reviewed three books. E.C.READ’N library participants are provided with a new release book of their choice, for every three reviews. (Books are provided to E.C.READ’N Libraries free of charge, thanks to the support of the Eastern and Central Community Trust). As with all E.C.READ’N programmes there is room for flexibility.

If your library is interested in offering iRead or you would like more information, please contact us here

The theme for 2018 is Power to Read – Te Kaha ki te Pānui !
