Teen Read Week May 1-7, 2017 --- Get Involved at Your Library
Teen Read Week allows public libraries to celebrate Teens and their contributions as part of the public library community, and for public libraries to highlight the services, collections and programs they offer youth in Nova Scotia.
Public Libraries across Nova Scotia offer a number of opportunities for Teens and young people to get involved!
- Teen Clubs
- Teen Programs
- Homework Help / School Support
- Teen Books/Collections
- Teen Spaces
- Virtual Services / Electronic Resources
- Library cards
Public libraries organize a diverse array of programming for Teens, including: art programs, craft nights, contests, movie screenings, open mics, games, gaming, teen nights and more.
A few public libraries offer volunteer opportunities for Teens, to assist with library programming, and offer a chance to give to their community.
One such program is “Book Buddies”, a library program that pairs elementary aged readers with teen volunteers for literacy games (such as board games, literacy puzzles), reading and social time. Teen volunteers are also often asked to help plan and deliver other library programs such as games or events for younger kids.
The Book Buddies program at the Elmsdale Public Library started up in September 2016.
