Primary school students can collect a Book Bounty bookmark from the library and fill in their name, year level and school. Students then keep the bookmark and bring it along to the Library every time they visit and receive a stamp from a Library staff member. After five visits, the bookmark is complete and can be surrendered for treasure from the “Book Bounty” treasure chest. Students are welcome to complete the Book Bounty program as many times as they want. Visit the Library today to sign up to Book Bounty.
