North Van libraries host book buddy program
Like to read? Well, you can share your love of books with children ages 6-11, who need a little help or encouragement to hone their reading skills. The North Vancouver Public Library‘s Book Buddies program runs Tuesdays, from Oct. 1 to Nov. 26. Children are matched with older book buddies who get together each week for 30 minutes to read aloud to each other, find books and play fun literacy games. If you are in Grades 10-12 and interested in committing to 26 volunteer hours over two months at Parkgate Branch, you can attend an info session on Sept. 18 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Lynn Valley Main Library, 3rd floor boardroom. For more info, contact Alison Campbell at 604-990-5800 ext. 8118 or email@example.com.
