Lytham Library – Reading Hack opportunity for young people aged 12 – 17 Years
If you love reading and are able to regularly commit to sharing your passion for books with others a few hours each week, then volunteering to be a Reading Hack would be a great opportunity for you.
Every year the Lancashire Reading Journey generates the need for reading hacks to help keep young people reading and motivated.
