When it comes to children’s reading habits, some old favourites are still the heroes of the hour.

Don’t believe the hype about technology, books are still performing heroic feats for children.

While they may be using e-readers and tablets, kids remain very active book readers, with heroes and villains still at the forefront of their imagination.

So, what are the kids of today reading?

The City of Playford library crews have given Playford News a Top 10 Borrowed Book list based upon the reading habits of local library borrowers.

Unsurprisingly, the classic Diary of A Wimpy Kid series tops the lists of Playford’s Civic Centre and Stretton Centre libraries.

The Top 10 Borrowed Books can all be read as part of the Australian Summer Reading Club, which is being held at libraries throughout the nation, including the City of Playford, until January 31, with themed activities for different age groups and prizes for those who complete a reading log.
