The Summer Read is on again at Campaspe libraries and with the warm weather already here, it is time to sit back, relax and lose yourself in a great Victorian book.

The State Library of Victoria and Public Libraries Network Victoria program celebrates the diversity of Victorian writing and encourages people to take time out with a good read.

The 10 Summer Read books are 2013 releases, written by a Victorian author, set in Victoria or about Victorians and all are free to borrow.

Readers also have the chance to win a personal library of up to 50 Victorian books by filling out an entry form at a Campaspe library.

The Summer Read runs until February 16.
