The SRP is based around children aged 3 to 10 years (or Year 6 in school) orally "reporting in" which develops communication skills, confidence and self-esteem.

Registrations open 14 November, and finish when the (limited) places are filled. The programme folders will be given out from 21 November, and the SRP (report ins) start from 5 December 2016.

A report-in is a short (5 minute) oral summary of the story, which the child gives to library staff or volunteers. Rural children may report via email (written) if they are unable to visit the library. Four report-ins are required to complete the programme, and children receive a small incentive gift after each report. They may complete a fifth bonus report if they wish. At the end of the programme, a Finale is held, and each child who has completed the programme will receive a certificate and free book.

Reports are limited to one report at a time, none on Saturdays, and up to two in any one week. If you are traveling, you can report in at any other East Coast library participating.
