This year's summer reading challenge is ‘Mischief Makers’, celebrating the 80th anniversary of the muchloved comic, Beano.
Children taking part in the challenge this year will follow clues to explore their colourful collector’s map of Beanotown; meeting Dennis, Gnasher and friends along the way. As children read library books they will collect special stickers to help them find the mysterious buried treasure!
Volunteering is an excellent way to gain valuable work experience and new skills, confidence in talking to children and adults, pleasure of encouraging children to enjoy reading, the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the community and it’s great for the CV.
