Rewards for readers of fiction stories
In an effort to encourage the reading of fiction stories, Umina Beach Public School Library is rewarding students who write reviews of borrowed books.
In a nod to the Roald Dahl classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, "golden e-tickets" have been hidden in a number of fiction books at the library.
"When students borrow a golden ticket book, the borrowing computer will ding to let them know," said principal Ms Lyn Davis.
"We will then give the student a golden ticket to write a brief review of the book after it is read.
"When the review is returned to the library, the student may choose a prize from the prize box.
"Their review will be displayed for others to read, Ms Davis said.
