Volunteer to help with the Summer Reading Challenge

Posted by on 24 April 2018

Are you a book lover?....A keen reader? Would you like to help children enjoy and take part in this Summer's Reading Challenge?! 

The idea is for young children to read six library books of their choice. Volunteers are needed to talk to children about the books they have read, read with them and maybe help them select their next book. If this sounds like something you would like to do and you are able to volunteer an hour or two per week during the summer holidays you are encouraged to get in touch as soon as possible – you can contact your local library or register online via

Suffolk Libraries is hoping for yet another successful summer of reading as it launches this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.

This year’s theme is ‘Mischief Makers’, inspired by the much-loved iconic children’s title The Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year.

The Summer Reading Challenge will be running in all the county’s 44 libraries and also the weekly Suffolk Libraries Local sessions in Shotley and Rushmere. Suffolk Libraries will also again be running ‘ImagiNation’, alongside the Summer Reading Challenge - an arts and literature activity for young people aged 10-18. Take a look at the blog post we wrote last year.
