Library Champions Information Session

Mon Sep 18 | 6:00 pm - | City Centre Library

New Immigrants Helping Other New Immigrants

Many new immigrants are not using libraries and do not know about all of the wonderful services and programs that libraries offer. As a volunteer Library Champion, you will share information about library programs and services with new immigrants and encourage them to become library users.

 

Become a Library Champion! You should attend this session if you are:

  • 19 years of age or older
  • A permanent resident, but not yet a Canadian citizen
  • Love libraries and helping other people
  • Want to volunteer

 

As a Library Champion, you will:

  • Expand your knowledge of library services and programs
  • Build communication and presentation skills
  • Make a valuable contribution to the community
  • Receive a certificate of achievement upon completion of the Library Championship
  • Get a volunteer work reference for the period of active Library Championship
  • Receive support to cover transportation costs
