Get drawn into Mythical Maze
Published on: 05 May 2014
VOLUNTEERS are needed to help children participate in the Summer Reading Challenge at libraries in Downend, Staple Hill and Emersons Green.
Those involved will have the chance to get involved in a variety of activities from talking to children about the books they are reading and helping them to choose what to read next, to helping with the summer activities and creating displays in the library. The closing date for applications is Monday June 16. Volunteers must be 14 or over.
Martin Burton, community cultural services manager for South Gloucestershire Council, said: “Volunteering for the Summer Reading Challenge offers young people a unique and powerful volunteering opportunity to gain confidence, life skills and experience team work.”
This year’s Summer Reading Challenge runs from July 12 to September 13, and the theme is Mythical Maze. Children are challenged to read six books to collect their own medal and certificate.
More than 7000 children in South Gloucestershire took part in Creepy House, the 2013 Summer Reading Challenge.
