Essex Libraries are looking for volunteers aged 14 or over to help children with this year's Summer Reading Challenge - Space Chase.

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.

Applications open on Saturday 16 March 2019 so put the date in your diary and watch this space!
