Walsall community libraries are looking for volunteers

In partnership with the Reading Agency and the World Wildlife Fund, our summer reading challenge theme this year is 'Wild World Heroes'. We want to inspire children to explore ways of helping to save the planet.

This important scheme will encourage children across Walsall to engage in fun reading activities focused on environmental issues. It promotes reading for pleasure for children aged 4 to 11 over the summer holidays. There is also a new digital platform providing accessible, fun reading activities for all children.

The challenge launches on Saturday 10 July. We are looking for volunteers to support our community libraries throughout the summer. If you are aged 16 or over and would like to get involved, please complete our volunteer application form.
