Explore the wonderful world of books and beyond with Kia Māia te Whai Dare to Explore - a free summer reading adventure for tamariki aged 5 to 12 years!

Join us as we explore all the wonders that our libraries have to offer. Challenge yourself, get reading and dare to explore!

The Kia Māia te Whai Dare to Explore summer reading adventure runs throughout the summer holidays (9 December 2019 to 20 January 2020) and can be completed anywhere - at home, on holiday, at your local library and with friends!

How it works:

  • Complete a challenge from each character and earn an invitation to your library's party.
  • Do any five challenges from the same character and get a cool sticker.
  • You can start anywhere, but the easier challenges are at the top of the list.
  • Try to read a little bit every day!
  • Don't forget to visit the library to show us your progress or to chat to our friendly librarians if you have any questions. 

Explore what Auckland Libraries has to offer! Not just about books, but also music, movies, puzzles, magazines and audiobooks, as well as a whole world of digital resources for you to explore and exciting activities you can take part in.

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
