Summer Reading Challenge Volunteers

Each year Inspire’s Libraries challenge children to read six books [or more!] over the summer holidays in the Summer Reading Challenge.

We need volunteers aged 14 years+ to help run and promote the challenge alongside Library Staff.

What does a Summer Reading Challenge volunteer do?

  •       Shares their own enthusiasm for reading by listening and chatting with children about the books they read on their challenge
  •       Explains to children and their parents/carers how the challenge works
  •       Joins children to the challenge and encourages them to complete
  •       Hands out stickers and rewards as children progress
  •       Keeps our challenge records up to date by completing and filing registration cards.

What’s in it for you?

  •      Gain experience of working with children
  •      Gain new skills and build confidence
  •      Meet new people
  •      Work as part of a team
  •      Receive a certificate for taking part
  •      Volunteering shouldn’t leave you out of pocket so we are able to cover reasonable travel costs to and from the library.
