Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Libraries Service is looking for volunteers between the ages of 13 and 24 to help with this summer’s reading challenge.

The theme is ‘Record Breakers’ and the Council’s libraries would like to recruit young people to share their passion for reading and encourage children to take part in the challenge.
Volunteers will sign up the children readers, giving out reward stickers and generally chat about books.

In 2014, an impressive 8,126 young people aged between 13 to 24 contributed nationally to the success of the Reading Challenge by volunteering in libraries across the country, sharing their enthusiasm for reading by listening to children talking about the books they had read and helping to run themed events in libraries.

If you would like to get involved visit your local library and ask about being a Summer Reading Challenge volunteer, or visit the Reading Hack website for more information:
