Reading challenge volunteers needed

VOLUNTEERS are needed to help run an annual summer reading challenge in North Somerset libraries between July 13 and September 14.
The scheme aims to give children aged four to 12 an enjoyable activity during their summer holidays and prevent any dip in literacy that may occur during the break from school.
All children who complete the challenge of reading six books and discussing their reading with staff and volunteers receive a medal and certificate.
Volunteers will help staff register children for the challenge, encourage children to discuss their reading, help children pick out their next book and prepare additional materials such as colouring or activity sheets.
They do not need any previous experience of volunteering or working in a library, and full training will be given.

The scheme is being offered at Clevedon, Nailsea, Portishead and Yatton libraries and volunteers would ideally give a minimum of 12 hours per week.
