Girl reading a book

Southend Libraries are looking for volunteers of all ages (above 14 years) to help keep children reading over the summer holidays and combat the ‘summer dip’ in literacy.

This is a great opportunity to meet new people and share your love of reading.

Application forms are available in our library venues, or by email request: LibraryDevelopment@southend.gov.uk

Applications close 15 June 2024. Please apply early to secure the library of your choice.
