Council appeals for Summer Reading Challenge volunteers
PUBLISHED: 14:00 21 April 2018
North Somerset libraries are looking for volunteers to take part in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.
The 2018 challenge, which encourages children aged four to 11 to read outside of school, sees the Readng Agency and libraries working alongside the Beano for the topic Mischief Makers.
Volunteers are needed to help children choose books and hand out stickers and other rewards.
Help is needed at libraries in Clevedon, Portishead, Nailsea, Long Ashton, Pill and Yatton.
Councillor Felicity Baker, North Somerset’s executive member with responsibility for libraries, said: “If you have a few hours to spare and are enthusiastic about encouraging children to enjoy reading, we would love to hear from you.”
The closing date for applications is June 11.
To volunteer, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 01934 426657.
