National Reading Day 2018 Challenge

Calling all tertiary students!!

We want to hear all about your experience with reading and reward you for it!


As part of National Reading Day on 28 July 2018, the NLB is organizing a contest specially for students who study in any of these MOE-registered institutes of higher learning.

Here’s your chance to get creative and show us, in the form of a video, all about your favourite book, why you love reading, where you love to read, what you love about your (school or public) library or how you would promote reading to your friends (any or all of the above!).


The contest is open between February and April 2018 and submissions have to be in the form of a 30 – 120 sec video (uploaded to YouTube). See full contest Terms and Conditions here.

New to film-making or don’t know where to start? Then join any of these video-making crash courses at public libraries – arranged specially for you.
