Book buddies is a one-on-one reading program to help young readers get more comfortable.

We match up developing readers with teen volunteers to read together and play literacy games for 30 minutes each week. Book buddies is available for kids ages 6-11; participants must have access to the internet for their 30 minute online session.

In our virtual format, the supervising librarian(s) will be rotating between all nine buddy groups, so each pairing won’t be supervised the entire time. We recommend having a parent sticking around nearby to provide technical support if necessary!

Please note that this session will take place over Zoom. You will need a microphone and speakers, or a headset, in order to take part in the session.

Registration required. Register online to receive a Zoom invite prior to the session or email Celeste at musseauc@nvdpl.ca for info.

Getting ready to apply for a summer job? Come to our resume workshops to learn how to make a resume, how to write a cover letter, and how to get references.

This is a great workshop for people who are making their first resumes or trying to figure out how to put their experience from school and sports onto paper for their employers. You can attend each session on its own, but we’d recommend attending all three sessions to learn about resumes, cover letters, and references. Please bring a laptop or device to write on, if you have one.

The teen resume workshop is for grades 7-12.

 

Registration required. Register online or email Jessie at hawkesj@nvdpl.ca for info.
