Are you aged 14-25 and interested in working with children? Then why not have fun this summer by volunteering with Southampton Libraries. You will 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 13 July – 31 August 2019 (Younger volunteers may not be available weekdays until 23 July 2019, this isn’t a problem just let us know in your application).

As a 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 Monday 17 June 2019

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.
