Book Bandicoots reading rewards for those 8 to 18 years old

Book Bandicoots is a new program for kids over 8 years old who love reading and visiting their local public library. Each time a child borrows a book they receive a stamp on their Book Bandicoots card and after 10 visits and completing a book review, the card can then be used as a voucher to the Margaret River Bookshop. Book Bandicoots is a perfect graduation for those who have completed Reading Rabbits or just want to be rewarded for reading for fun.

Book Bandicoots is a partnership between the Shire of Augusta Margaret River Libraries, Rotary Club of Margaret River and the Margaret River Bookshop.

Please see our friendly library staff to participate and answer any of your questions.
