Every year Reading Hack volunteers aged 13-24 help libraries make the Summer Reading Challenge a success across the country.

This would be a great chance for Wellingtonians to volunteer over the summer break – local libraries are looking for help with their reading programme for younger years. This would be directly arranged between yourselves and the local library –  to find out more please visit readinghack@readingagency.org.uk



Reading Hack is a programme led by young people who do reading activities and volunteering, called hacks, to gain skills and experience. The Summer Reading Challenge engages thousands of children in reading over the long school holidays. With over 800,000 children taking part in 2016, 87% of library services chose to work with volunteers during the busy summer period.
