About the event
The Great Kiwi Bookathon
Throughout the month of June, when your kids read the books they love, they can win cool stuff, and earn rewards. The Great Kiwi Bookathon is all about getting kids and their whānau reading LIKE MAD and having fun, while raising awareness and much-needed funds for Blind Low Vision NZ.
Funds raised from the Great Kiwi Bookathon will help fund vital support services, like our fully accessible library service, counselling to support the family adjusting to changes in family life and the outlook ahead. Our services help kids and their families to live the life they choose.
