Be a Volunteer for the Summer Reading Challenge 2019

South Gloucestershire Libraries are looking for friendly and enthusiastic volunteers to join the team running Space Chase, Summer Reading Challenge 2019.

Volunteers will spend their time supporting children to do the Summer Reading Challenge, talking with them about the books they’re reading and helping at a range of fun activities in the library. This is a great opportunity to develop skills in communication, team working and creative projects, whilst having fun and making new friends.

Summer Reading Challenge

Mason, who volunteered last summer said “I've really enjoyed helping out this summer. It's been really good to develop my communication and problem-solving skills which I know will definitely be invaluable for me in the future. The excitement of reading that children still have or had gained by the end of the summer reading challenge was a joy to see, and I was glad to be a part of that”.

More than 5,000 children took part in last year’s Summer Reading Challenge helped by 60 volunteers. The theme of this year’s challenge is Space Chase – our super space family, the Rockets, need children’s help to track down books that have been nabbed by Aliens! As children read 6 library books over the summer they collect special stickers to complete their mission.

The closing date for applications is 30 June. Volunteers must be aged 13 or over. For more information ask a member of staff at any South Gloucestershire library, email or visit www.southglos.gov.uk/libraries.

Space Chase, the Summer Reading Challenge 2019

Mischief Makers

Get ready for an out-of–this-world adventure at a South Gloucestershire Library this summer – it’s Space Chase, the Summer Reading Challenge 2019!

Our super space family the Rockets need your help to track down books that have been nabbed by Aliens! As you read 6 library books over the summer, collect special stickers (including some stinky ones!) to complete your mission folder and get your medal and certificate.

Space Chase blasts off on Saturday 13 July and children have until Saturday 14 September to complete their mission. It’s FREE to take part!

Please encourage your children to visit the library and sign up and see the difference the Summer Reading Challenge makes to their reading.

“My son really enjoyed the challenge and it kept him motivated to keep reading over the school holidays which will really help when he goes back to school.” (Parent, Cadbury Heath Library).

Zoom off to the library for FREE awesome activities over the holidays including Fizz Pop Science workshops, Lego Mindstorm Mars Rover Challenge with Aerospace Bristol and Space Chase craft activities.

Support our Fundraising

Chipping Sodbury Library

Although South Gloucestershire Council provide our books etc. it is up to the Friends of Chipping Sodbury Library to raise funds for other items such as cushions for our children's reading area.

The Friends hold book sales to help raise funds, and would be grateful for donations of children's books to sell.

Please note these books cannot be added to library stock.

About the Library

Following a campaign by local residents, who formed a Friends of Chipping Sodbury Library group, South Gloucestershire Council agreed not to close Chipping Sodbury Library as part of their 2017 savings measures.

With the help of the Gruffalo, Chipping Sodbury library was successfully relaunched in October 2017 as a Community Library run by volunteers.

Chipping Sodbury Library

South Glos Libraries continue to provide books, CDs, DVDs and IT support for the three computers, along with a self-service machine.

A call for volunteers resulted in over forty people coming forward to help and, with support from Sodbury Town Council, they now staff the library so users can continue to enjoy it.

It continues to offer the same services as it did before and, in addition, is open all day on Wednesday when Yate library is shut.

The large team of volunteers are enthusiastically learning the ropes and are very grateful for the patience being shown by users.

They are more than happy to give their time to keep the library open and enjoy helping people get the most out of it.

A lot of effort went into persuading South Glos Council not to close the library, so please come in and use it so that we can prove to them that they made the right decision.
