Mischief Managed, thanks to our Summer Reading Challenge volunteers
Now that the Summer Reading Challenge has been put to bed for another year, we have been reflecting on the huge impact our Summer Reading Challenge volunteers made to the Mischief Makers challenge in libraries across Hertfordshire.
Summer Reading Challenge volunteers come into libraries to sign children up, chat with them about their library books, and celebrate their success by presenting them with medals and certificates at the end of the challenge. They make a big contribution to the local community and inspire thousands of children to keep reading.
Here are some statistics from this year’s challenge:
5,953 - the number of hours our Mischief Makers volunteers gave between July and September
425 - the total number of volunteers who supported this year’s Summer Reading Challenge
305 - the number of volunteers aged 14-24
14 - the average number of hours given by each volunteer
Without our wonderful army of volunteers we would not be able to offer the amazing Summer Reading Challenge that we do. We
would like to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers who made Mischief Makers such a success.
Let’s do it again next year!
