Reading Hack 12 – 17 years

If you are aged between 12- 17 years and are looking to do some volunteering at Fulwood Library every Saturday Morning, this opportunity is for you.

Every Saturday Fulwood Library has a craft group and they would like a Reading Hack volunteer to help support them in delivering those craft sessions. If you are able to regularly commit to sharing your Saturday morning volunteering with others, please apply.
