Summer Reading Challenge 2019


Would you like to be a Summer Reading Challenge volunteer? 

Every year Cumbria Libraries run the Summer Reading Challenge. This is a national scheme to encourage young people (usually 4 to 12 year olds) to read during the summer holidays. The challenge is to read 6 books. There is a different theme each year and for 2019 it is Space Chase, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.

We are looking for young people aged 13 to 24 to help us run the challenge which asks children aged 4 to 12 to read at least 6 books over the summer holiday.

This is a great way to gain skills and experience to add to your CV. Young people who have volunteered in the past have said they have had fun and make new friends whilst getting the satisfaction of helping children and supporting their local library.

Full details can be found in the attached role description and information document. Then you can apply either online or at your local library. A staff member will then contact you for an informal chat about this opportunity.
