What to do.

Visit The Grove Library

Visit the library and select books to read during the summer holidays. We have tables of great books to check out; adventure, fantasy, funny and, early chapter books.

Pick up a Reading Log and record how many books or hours you read over the summer school holidays.

The Club is open to all and there are lots of prizes to win and stuff to do. You can post book reviews, artwork, an online quiz and blog with Leigh Hobbs and Deborah Abela.
