Summer Reading Challenge Young Volunteers

Aged 16 to 24? Do you enjoy reading? Do you enjoy working with children and want to volunteer? Then helping with the Summer Reading Challenge in libraries in Wokingham Borough Libraries may be for you.

We are looking for young people who can encourage children to take part in and complete this year’s Summer Reading Challenge, Mischief Makers and help out with library duties and children’s activities in the library.

It’s fun and a great addition to your CV and you have the chance to give something back to your local community.

The volunteering opportunities will be at Wokingham, Woodley and Lower Earley Libraries from Monday 30 July to Friday 31 August 2018.

Before you start you will receive full training, for more information contact volunteer@wokingham.gov.uk or call 0118 974 6263.

Lower Earley Library 30th Birthday Coffee Morning Celebration

Staff and customers enjoyed a special coffee morning today to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the library opening in Lower Earley. The opening was on this day, November 23 in 1987. Customers were invited to join with staff to enjoy home made cakes and coffee in aid of the Children in Need Appeal.

Local author Christine Dodsworth also came along the library to launch her new book “Shandy on Sunday” which describes life in Yorkshire in the 1950s and 1960s and is of special interest to baby boomers!

Cllr Michael Firmager, the Mayor of Earley  and deputy executive member for Wokingham Borough Council visited the library  to cut the 30th Birthday Cake which was made for the library celebration by our star baker Claire Groves. Susan Brickell, who was one of the library’s original customers on our opening day in 1987 also visited the library today-pictured below with Sue Hawkins who was a library supervisor at Lower Earley for many years.
