20 Jun 2018

Do you know someone aged 13 to 24 who could help deliver this year's Summer Reading Challenge in libraries across the city? 

Up to 100 volunteers are needed to help children take part in the annual challenge from The Reading Agency. The initiative, which is based on the theme of 'mischief makers' this year, asks children to sign up at their local library and read a total of six library books over the school holidays. There are exclusive rewards to collect along the way, and it’s completely free to take part.

This year, the Summer Reading Challenge is being supported by over 200 activities in libraries across Manchester. The opportunity to volunteer is suitable for young people who enjoy talking to children and getting stuck in to fun activities to encourage children to enjoy reading. It can also look great on CVs, applications to apprenticeships and the Duke of Edinburgh Award - plus it's a fun way to get to know your local community a bit more! 

To find out more please get in touch or download this leaflet for more reasons to get involved.
