Are You Brave Enough For The Creepy House Summer Reading Challenge

Published: 3rd May 2013 10:04

Are You Brave Enough For The Creepy House Summer Reading ChallengeThe Summer Reading Challenge returns to Milton Keynes this year the Council's Library Service is looking for volunteers aged 13-25 years to share their love of reading with local children and young people during the summer holidays.

Organised by The Reading Agency, this year's Summer Reading Challenge has the spooky theme of ‘Creepy House' created by award winning illustrator Chris Riddell. The annual event is to encourage children to read at least six books of their choice during the summer holidays.

Volunteers will sign up children and young people to the Summer Reading Challenge, support them in finding their next book and track their progress, and talk to them about what they have liked reading. No special training is required as volunteers will be provided with an information pack and will be accompanied by a member of library staff at all times.

Cllr David Hopkins, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Enterprise, said: "The Summer Reading Challenge is an exciting event for both the children who get involved and the young people who generously offer their time to support it.

"Children's reading can dip during the long summer holidays. The challenge encourages three quarters of a million children across the UK to visit libraries and up their reading skills and confidence

If you think that you could be a volunteer mentor this summer, contact the Library Service on 01908 254050 or, or visit The closing date for applications is Friday 21 June 2013.
