Ngā Tamariki o Matariki – School Holiday Programme at Auckland Council Libraries

Join Auckland Council Libraries for a celebration of Matariki with Beanstack, an easy-to-use reading challenge app and website.

Kids and teens can log their reading and complete activities on Beanstack to earn activity and reading badges and go in the draw to win prizes.

There is one challenge for both tamariki and rangatahi aged 5-18. The challenge offers heaps of fun activities and reading lists to engage them with reading, fun, and learning.

Kids and teens are invited to explore the themes of the nine stars of Matariki through reading lists and fun activities.

Have a whānau games night, fly a manu tukutuku (kite) or do a rain gauge experiment. Create a piece of art inspired by NZ’s ika (fish) or tuna (eels), or make a planter with kowhaiwhai patterns, a remembrance box, or a wish jar, and heaps more.

Keep an eye on the COVID-19 page on our website for any changes to our services.
