Come and Join Us!
In 2016, over 20,000 children signed up to the Summer Reading Challenge in libraries across Hertfordshire and we are hoping for a repeat performance this summer, as children to flock to libraries during July and August to take part in Animal Agents, the 2017 Summer Reading Challenge.
To support the children along the way, every summer we recruit an army of volunteers aged 14+. It’s a great opportunity to make a positive contribution to your local community and help children to keep reading through the holidays.
Our Summer Reading Challenge volunteers are based in libraries, giving out rewards for each stage of the Challenge that the children complete, and listening to them talking about the books they have been reading. We are particularly keen to recruit volunteers aged 14-24 to provide children with reading role models, but volunteers of all ages are welcome to apply.
