Reading challenge comes to libraries

Volunteers are needed for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge taking place in libraries across the Daventry district.

Each year, children from across the county aged between four and 12 take part in the Summer Reading Challenge, a national scheme with incentives, activities and events designed to encourage children to read. This year the theme is Mythical Maze.

Volunteers aged 14 to 17 are needed to help with this year’s challenge, which takes place from July 12 to September 12. Different roles are available including helping children with reading and activities, helping to train new volunteers and helping to promote the Summer Reading Challenge.
