2024 Reading Challenge

Take on our 2024 Reading Challenge for your chance to win a great prize!

This year we've curated an exciting collection of reading prompts to inspire you to explore new, unique, and unusual books on our shelves. Keep track of your progress with our handy Reading Challenge bookmark, available at all library locations. Happy reading!


Booklover Giveaways

We'll be giving away some fantastic prizes throughout the year for people taking part in our Reading Challenge! Once you have completed at least four of the twelve categories, hand in your bookmark at one of our library branches and you will go into the draw.


For a bonus entry, post a short (max 100 words) public review of one of the books you have read with a photo to Facebook or Instagram, tag Shoalhaven Libraries @ShoalhavenLibraries and use #ShoalhavenReads so that we can see it. 

Look out for prizes throughout the year and keep an eye on this page for regular updates.
