Thank you and au revoir from Story Lab Westminster :-)

This summer we had 63 volunteers, mostly young people aged under 25, helping us to deliver ‘Story Lab’, the Summer Reading Challenge in Westminster Libraries [read more about Story Lab here].

Cocojam perform at the Story Lab volunteers thank you partyLast week we held a Thank You party for the volunteers and presented them with certificates for helping us. To kick off the event there was a performance by Cocojam – their youth street dance group (the group are all under 15 years old) performed a routine and they were awesome!

Here some comments from just a few of the volunteers about their experiences:

“I really loved talking to the kids and helping to get them excited about reading. One little boy read his first book and was so excited to get a sticker that he went around the library telling everyone, including the people working at the desk and random strangers!”

“Really enjoyable and rewarding.”

“I just like listening to children, some of them look like they really had fun reading and it’s so nice to see them smiling and being enthusiastic about their books.”

“…friendly staff and great atmosphere.”
