The Reading Agency and libraries are delighted to present the 2017 Summer Reading Challenge, Animal Agents - a whole host of clever creatures, ready to solve all kinds of crimes! This band of furry, slippery and feathered friends is specially trained to use their skills and natural instincts to unravel mysteries – with a huge helping of fun along the way.
Would you like to help younger children read over the summer?
Would you like to get some skills that will be great for your C.V., university application or Duke of Edinburgh Award assessment?
If you are between the ages of 13 and 24 and want to help promote reading to young people then become a Reading Hack with Northumberland Libraries.
Roles available include:
- To help staff to administer the Challenge
- To talk to children about the books they’ve been reading
- To help children choose new books
- To help with summer activities
- To help to create in-library displays
- Helping children to use the Summer Reading Challenge website
- Using activity sheets and other ideas to help children share their reading choices with their peers
We will be holding a series of 'drop-in' sessions to tell you about being a Reading Hack and helping library staff run this year's Summer Reading Challenge. The Challenge asks children in the County to read six books during the school summer holidays for which they are awarded a certificate and medal and other goodies.
