The Christchurch Kids Blog content will be moving to our new Christchurch City Libraries website. We won’t be using this blog any more but you will still be able to read our posts about children’s books, authors and writing on our new website. You will also still be able to have your say and let us know what you think.
If there is anything that you would really like to see on our new website for kids please post a comment and let us know.
Do you want the chance to meet the Crusaders and win some awesome prizes? You need to join the Reading Crusade.
The Reading Crusade starts on Monday 11 March and runs until 19 April (that’s 6 weeks). It’s a reading competition that takes place every second year and is brought to you by Christchurch City Libraries in conjunction with the CRFU (Canterbury Rugby Football Union).
You can register to take part now by going to the Christchurch City Libraries’ Reading Crusade page.
All you have to do to enter is:
- Download your reading log from the Christchurch City Libraries’ website or get a paper copy from their teacher or local library.
- Read four books of your choice.
- Complete a reading log. This reading log needs to be verified online by a teacher, parent or librarian.
You can enter as many times as you like, so if you read 20 books you’ll get 5 entries in the draw. Everyone who completes a reading log (and gets it verified online) is entered into the draw to win tickets to the prizegiving ceremony on Monday 13 May, where you could meet the Crusaders.
Join the Reading Crusade now and get reading!
The Reading Crusade starts today, so make sure you grab a copy of the reading log from your library. You can also download the reading log from the Reading Crusade website.
