Summer Reading Challenge 2019 - Various locations across Somerset
This is an ideal opportunity for a young person wanting to gain voluntary experience or an adult who simply wants to share their love of reading and support their local library. The Summer Reading Challenge is a national event produced by the Reading Agency and held across libraries in the UK during the school summer holidays. Children sign up at their local library, then read six library books of their choice to complete the challenge. There are exclusive rewards to collect along the way, as well as a host of fun activities and events, and it’s FREE to take part! How can you help? Last year, over 7,400 children took part in the challenge in Somerset and we couldn’t do that without the help of volunteers. Volunteers help us with the challenge by signing up children when they come into the library, giving out rewards for reading books, talking to children about the books they have read, helping them choose their next book, and helping to run craft activities. The Summer Reading Challenge runs from the 13th July to the 7th September and we are looking for volunteers who can regularly volunteer during that period. We can be flexible with which days, but we are ideally looking for someone who can give at least half a day a week. Short holidays can be worked around.
