Volunteer with Lambeth Libraries - Summer Reading Challenge 2016.

Are you aged between 14 to 24 years of age? Do you enjoy reading? Do you enjoy working with children and want to volunteer? Then helping with the Summer Reading Challenge for Lambeth Libraries may be for you.

Our Summer Reading Challenge aims to keep children aged 4 to 12 years reading throughout the holiday.

This year’s theme is Record Breakers and will bring together the worlds of fact and fiction, challenging children and young people to explore some of the amazing real-life achievements and world records featured in the Guinness World Records Books.

Ideally we are looking for a commitment from you of at least 24 hours to be worked over the summer holiday, between July and September. Some libraries may need help at weekends, so please let us know what time of day you are free to help us.

It’s fun; you will make new friends and have the chance to give something back to your local community.

It will be a great addition to your CV and we will also provide you with a reference. If you are doing Duke of Edinburgh Award, this volunteering may help.

An Open Day will be held on Monday 4 July, between 4 to 6pm at Clapham Library, Mary Seacole Centre, 91 Clapham High Street, London, SW4 7DB. So why not come along and find out more. Don’t worry if you are unable to attend on that day, just email our Children’s Librarian sdavidson@lambeth.gov.uk to find out more.

Follow the links for more information, the volunteer’s role and an application form.

Lambeth Libraries are part of the national campaign to have more young volunteers supporting our libraries this summer. You might like to check out the summerreadingchallenge.org.uk.
