Game of Loans: Battle Royale

The battle is over and this year's summer reading challenge has come to an end. Find out who won!

Game of Loans Battle Royale

Join us in January for a battle like no other! 

⚔️ This year's summer reading challenge is a Battle Royale against Melton City Libraries. Which library service will win? Well, that's up to you!

👑Children across the City of Yarra will need to work as a team to read more than the children in Melton City Council. The library service with the most books logged at the end of the program will win the Game of Loans crown, but there are prizes for you to win too!

How the challenge works:

One lucky player will win a gift voucher to the Royal Melbourne Zoo (valued at $700).

Thanks to our program sponsors, The Little Bookroom, there are also five gift vouchers (valued at $100 each) to be won.

🎉 If that's not enough, our school holiday program is packed full of online events, in-person (socially distanced) events and activities you can complete at your own pace. Participate in our school holiday program to unlock bonus achievement badges for your Beanstack profile (and show-off to your friends!).

Game of Loans: Battle Royale starts Friday 1 January 2021

Our summer reading challenge is free to join and everyone is welcome to participate (parents and carers can play along too!). The challenge uses Beanstack, a third-party application built for libraries. The app allows you to log the books you read and rewards you with badges upon reaching certain milestones or when you complete a specified activity. This gamified, incentive-based challenge can increase engagement with reading and reading satisfaction, particularly with reluctant readers. We deliver this program in tandem with our school holiday program to help sustain your child's literacy level over the long summer break.

Tell us what you think - we'd love to hear from you!
