Premier's Reading Challenge

( using * as the wildcard )
The Challenge aims to encourage a love of reading for leisure and pleasure in students, and to enable them to experience quality literature. It is not a competition but a challenge to each student to read, to read more and to read more widely. The Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) is available for all NSW students in Kindergarten to Year 9, in government, independent, Catholic and home schools. All Penrith City Library branches stock books from the recommended booklists. They are labelled and shelved in their own PRC sections in the children's collection areas. We now have a new collection group for Premier's Reading Challenge books on our Overdrive site, with eBooks that can be downloaded by library members. This week we are featuring some PRC titles that are held in both print and eBook formats. This month's new eBook and audio titles have been added to Overdrive.
