VOLUNTEERS are needed by Warrington Libraries to help with a special summer challenge.
Young volunteers between the ages of 14 and 24 are wanted to participate in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge activities and events.
The summer vacation event, supported by The Reading Agency, has been designed to fuel the imagination of young people with a reading challenge centered on science and innovation.
This year’s theme, “Gadgeteers”, will “ignite children’s curiosity about the world around them”.
With resources and activities from the Science Museum Group, the challenge aims to inspire kids to see the science and innovation behind everyday objects, showing that reading and science are for everyone.
By taking part in the challenge with free packs from Warrington Libraries or The Reading Agency’s children’s website, children will be able to join six fictional ‘Gadgeteers’.
The Summer Reading Challenge reaches over 700,000 children across the UK each year and is run in partnership with public libraries.
Rachel Ralston, LiveWire’s Strategic Library Manager, said, “We’re looking for book-loving volunteers to join our challenge.
“You will participate in all the fun activities we have planned and you will have the chance to participate to inspire others to participate.
“What better way to encourage the children of Warrington to read during the summer months, while making new friends and having fun!”
