Red Deer Public Library is seeking enthusiastic adults or college/high school students to volunteer their time as a Reading Pal with elementary school children (Grades 1-6) who are struggling with reading and/or writing.
Whether you want to start using that new laptop you got as a present or check out an eBook onto your device, we provide individual consultation to suit your needs. Call Tatiana at 403-341-3822 or email email@example.com to arrange an appointment.
RDPL has over 300 DAISY CDs that you can take out with your library card?
DAISY CDs are an audio substitute for print materials, specifically designed for people with print disabilities including (but not limited to) blindness, impaired vision, and dyslexia. Ask at any desk to see if you qualify to check items out of this collection!
The YRCA is coordinated by the Pacific Northwest Library Association (PNLA) and is the oldest children's choice award in the U.S. and Canada. Students in Grades 4-12 from Alaska, British Columbia, Alberta, Washington, Montana, and Idaho will determine the winner of this literary award by reading the books and voting for their favourite. Kids need to read or listen to at least two titles in a division to vote in that division. Voting will begin March 2017.
For more information, see frequently asked questions on the PNLA website at www.pnla.org/yrca or ask at any Branch.
