MEH Whatever

Welcome to MEH. You found us. Yay.

MEH web page buttons 30NOV 1A thoroughly interesting teenage guide to the summer holiday (aka how to keep them reading and engaged with the outside world over the summer)

Hastings District Libraries runs the MEH programme for teens 13-18yrs over the summer holidays.

What is MEH?

Taking a cue from other successful library programmes, Meh is an offering just for teens and is delivered over the summer months. The programme includes a set of challenges and events to keep them reading, discovering and engaged.

It is designed so that it can be done completely virtually, within the library or a bit of both. As well as this, there are some great prizes up for grabs!

How do the challenges work?

Once a teen registers online there are 12 challenges to work through. Teens choose whichever challenges they would like to complete and in what order.

Each time a challenge is completed it is recorded using the online form, or by talking to a librarian. They are then automatically in to win in the weekly prize draws (between early December to late January) of movie passes and other vouchers.

Participants who have completed 4 or more challenges will also go in the grand prize draw. 

Information for Schools

We want to help encouraging your students to read over the summer break! You can help us achieve this goal by allowing us to talk to your students about this programme before the holidays. We’d love to come to your school assembly!

Here’s how it could work

  • Our team can come out to the school at a prearranged time during term 4
  • We wow your students with our literary awesomeness and they all clamour to sign up for the programme
  • Did we mention it’s FREE?

We look forward to hearing from you and organising a time to visit your school!
