Summer Sparks Challenge 2023-24

Civic Square, Warren Street, Hastings

Hastings District Libraries Summer Sparks Challenge is for children aged 5-12.

The programme runs annually from early December to late January.

What is Summer Sparks?
A fun set of challenges and activities providing an innovative and dynamic way of encouraging children’s learning and discovery over the summer holidays.

The programme incorporates a variety of literacy forms and methods, including, but not limited to, traditional reading based elements.

Reporting in can be done online at any time and from anywhere that has an internet connection. So, if you're away on holiday and want to tell us about the book you just read, you can do it from Motueka... or Madagascar!
