CHILDREN’S Book Week will be celebrated at Mundijong Public Library with a Reading Olympics challenge for local schools.

From August 5 to 20, students can let the library staff know about a book they have read, or had someone read to them, and they will be given a token.

The more books read, the more students can collect tokens for their schools.

The winning schools will be announced during Children’s Book Week, August 20 to 26, and will be in the running to win new books.
