Helping children in the summer reading challenge

Last Saturday I did work experience for two hours in the library.I spent time with various children doing arts and crafts and giving book recommendations.Children are excited by the idea of animal agents and the possibility of gaining stickers.I have so far thoroughly enjoyed the experience.Also working with other volunteers in the library gives me new ideas for possible tasks i could do with children.I would recommend if you are not currently in the future to volunteer.

On Tuesday helped out with SRC and shelved books, Volunteered for 4 hours. On Thursday helped out SRC and registered kids for the SRC. Handed leaflets to kids to invite them to the Neal Zetter show. (Volunteered for 4 hours)
