Reading Hack (Young Volunteers)

A hack is “a clever solution to a tricky problem. To hack is to modify or change something in an extraordinary way” [Urban Dictionary definition, 2009]. How does this apply to reading? Our Reading Hack volunteers are young people who aim to redefine reading and inspire other children to get involved and read as much as they can. This might involve interviewing a local author, helping run regular children events or even creating art which will be displayed throughout our libraries. Our group of Reading Hacks are committed to helping make our libraries a more engaging place for young people. Volunteers can commit as much or as little time as they want to work around their exams and school commitments. You can find information about volunteering with us by contacting
