Join the Reading Crusade

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!
