Young reading enthusiasts are needed to help children choose books at Norfolk's libraries this summer.

Norfolk County Council is looking for volunteers aged between 13-25 to get involved in its Summer Reading Challenge, called Animal Agents.

The annual reading event for primary school children involves borrowing and reading books, collecting clues and getting rewards including stickers.

School children can join in Animal Agents Summer Reading Challenge 2017 at their local library throughout the school summer holidays

The campaign is produced nationally by The Reading Agency.

But the scheme relies on the help of up to 150 young volunteers at each of the 47 libraries, hence the library service's appeal.

To get involved as a volunteer in the summer reading challenge, email volunteercontact@norfolk.gov.uk or call 0344 800 8020.
