Volunteers needed in local libraries

LIBRARIES across Rotherham are looking for enthusiastic young volunteers to help with their annual Summer Reading Challenge for children.

The library service is challenging children aged four to 11 to read six books over the summer holidays and is asking for anyone aged 12 to 16 to support the activities in local libraries.

Library group manager Mark Heaton said: “Becoming a young volunteer will give you the opportunity to meet new friends and, apart from being great fun, the experience will help to build your confidence and skills for the future.”
