All children and young adults from kindergarten to Year 12 are encouraged to take up the school holiday challenge. These holidays there will be a great selection of books to read, prizes and fun activity days to get involved in.

Participants who register will receive free Summer Reading Club incentives at each reading milestone as they read their way towards a total of ten books by the end of the school holidays.

This year’s theme is Curious Creatures -  encouraging exploration and connection with curious creatures, particularly our unique Australian flora and fauna.

Young readers will be encouraged to explore new worlds as they satisfy their creature curiosities.

Local History Local History

Through its local history collection, Somerset Libraries aims to preserve and promote the history and culture of the region. History is a special part of libraries. Items are often rare, sometimes even unique, and are kept for the enjoyment of current library and future generations.

The Local History Collection is a compilation of resources reflecting the history of Somerset. The focus is on printed, published and paper-based material specifically relating to the history of Somerset. The collection is located at Council’s Esk Library.

It’s always interesting to find out about your local town or family history. You’re never sure what you might find.

To find out more about the Somerset region’s interesting and unique background visit Picture Somerset at https://catalogue.somerset.qld.gov.au/montage/gallery.aspx.

Indigenous Australians are advised that Picture Somerset may include images or names of people now deceased.

Digitising of the photograph collection is ongoing.

Donations and copies of heritage material is appreciated.
