Summer Reading Month

Summer Reading Month


From 2002 to 2017, the Hong Kong Public Libraries (HKPL) has been organizing the territory-wide summer programme for children, Summer Reading Month, aiming to promote summer reading and encourage parent-child reading through thematic exhibition and a variety of reading activities.

The activities of summer Reading Month are rich and full of fun. In addition to the thematic exhibition, an array of activities include parent-child talks, variety shows, interactive storytelling workshops, parent-child workshops, contest on dramatization, etc. In order for parents, teachers and children to know more about the theme, a thematic guide to books and multimedia resources in the public libraries has been prepared for further reading on the theme.
