Premiers' Reading Challenge

Published on 07 May 2024


The Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge is now open! 

Visit the official website to register. 

The Challenge is open to all Victorian children from birth to Year 10 in recognition of the importance of reading for literacy development. It is not a competition; but a personal challenge for children to read a set number of books by 6 September 2024.

Children from Prep to Year 2 are encouraged to read or ‘experience’ 30 books with their parents and teachers. Children from Year 3 to Year 10 are challenged to read 15 books.

All children who meet the Challenge will receive a certificate of achievement signed by the Victorian Premier and former Premiers.

To read the Premier’s letter to parents, view the booklist and for more information about the Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge, visit:  

There are more than 6,000 books on the book list. You can take a look at our library catalogue to see what's available on our shelves.
