Summer Reading Challenge 2019

23 May 2019

Summer Space Chase volunteers needed!

Essex Libraries are looking for volunteers aged 14 or over to help children develop their enjoyment of reading through Space Chase, Summer Reading Challenge 2019.

Every year thousands of children across the county come to the library to take part in a fun reading activity during the summer holidays.  The challenge is to read 6 books and their reward is stickers and a medal.

As a volunteer you’ll help library staff to:

  • Join children to the Summer Reading Challenge
  • Talk to children (mainly aged 4 to 11) about their books
  • Hand out stickers and rewards

You’ll have fun and gain new skills – and it’s great for your CV!

Essex Libraries are looking for volunteers who can commit to a minimum of 18 hours from Saturday 20th July to Monday 2nd September 2019.

The process is quick and easy  and applications are open until 16th June 2019.  Volunteers must be 14 and over by 1st September this year.
