Volunteers needed for Summer Reading Challenge 2022!

Volunteers needed for Summer Reading Challenge 2022!

We’re looking for enthusiastic and creative young people who are keen to listen and talk to children about their reading this summer and encourage them to take part and complete the Summer Reading Challenge.

Are you aged 14 to 25 and interested in working with children? Then why not have fun this summer by volunteering with Southampton Libraries. You’ll gain work experience and new skills by helping children keep reading during the summer holidays.

We are looking for volunteers who can commit to a minimum of one 3 hour session a week from 9 July to 27 August 2022. (Younger volunteers may not be available weekdays until 23 July 2022, this isn’t a problem just let us know in your application).

As a Summer Reading Volunteer you will help library staff:

- Join children in the Summer Reading Challenge
- Talk to children about their books
- Hand out stickers and rewards
- Help with Summer Activities

The closing date for applications is Friday 10 June 2022.

Young people aged 16 and over will need a DBS check. A member of library staff will contact you to discuss what documentation is needed.
