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!

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

For more information please see the Role Description.

Applications are open until 16 June and the process is quick and easy, so help us to have a blast this summer!
