Summer Reading Challenge

Take the Summer Reading Challenge!

This summer holiday we are celebrating the joy of reading.

Through photos we’ll be sharing our summer stories, our favourite reading spots around the Inner West (and beyond), holding book character dress ups and more. And we’d love you to join us!

Whether you take your favourite library book on a far-off holiday, you’re curled up in a reading chair at home, or you hold a soft toy photo shoot, we challenge you to share your photos that celebrate reading. Open to all ages, the more creative the better.

We’ll be sharing our favourite snaps on social media throughout the summer and all entries go in the draw to win great prizes!

To enter the challenge, simply tag us in your photo on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and use the hashtag #IWCsummerreading

Or alternatively, email us your picture to

Please include a short blurb about your reading inspiration!
