Are you up for a challenge?

We're looking for volunteers aged 13 to 25 to become Summer Reading Challenge Champions. If you love books and reading, want experience working with children and enjoy talking with people, then why not sign up?

During the summer holidays Milton Keynes Libraries get extremely busy with over 3000 children taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge and we want you to act as reading role models for them.

You will sign children up to the challenge, track their progress, hand out incentives, help them find their next book and most importantly chat with them about what they've been reading.

We would like you to commit to around 2 hours a week, although ideally times and even locations would be flexible.

There will be a group induction evening before the summer holidays to tell you more about the role, what we expect from you and what you should expect from us.

If you want to get involved, please complete the online application form. If you prefer, you can print an application form or ask library staff for a form and then return it to Central Library. 

The closing date for applications is Friday 28 June 2024.
