Every year volunteers of all ages help libraries make the Summer Reading Challenge a huge success across the county. The Challenge engages children in reading over the long school holidays and with over 9,000 children aged 4 to 12 taking part last year, our volunteers make an essential contribution to the delivery of this event throughout the summer. Whether helping to promote the Summer Reading Challenge by undertaking presentations at local school assemblies and creating eye catching promotional material, or talking to children about the books they have read and handing out awards and certificates, our volunteers play a vital part in making this event a great success. There are a number of opportunities available in our libraries to support these events, including Summer Reading Challenge Assistant/Team Leader and Summer Reading Challenge Promoter. (A full description for each of these roles is available from the library). Please note - Summer Reading Challenge Assistant and Team Leader roles are open to volunteers aged 14 years and above, but anyone can get involved as long as you are young at heart!
