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.
Consider inviting Children’s Library staff to your preschool, daycare, agency or community group to talk about the resources and services Red Deer Public Library offers to children and families. Call 403-342-9100 ext 2000 for more information or to book a visit.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment.
Tutoring is a great way to help a newcomer to Canada, or a Canadian-born learner improve their literacy skills. Learners are at a variety of levels. You do not need to have teaching experience or ESL training to assist these learners.
A two hour per week commitment is all we ask. Training and support provided.
Get back more than you give. We have the perfect opportunity for you.
