Reading Buddies: Call for Volunteers

Teen Volunteers need for our Reading Buddies Program

KFPL is looking for teen volunteers to assist with our popular Reading Buddies program. Volunteers will assist a KFPL programmer in the facilitation of literacy instruction and fun activities for children in Grades 1 to 3. We need volunteers for our July 9 - July 12 session at Isabel Turner (1:30 - 3 p.m. each day) and our August 6 - 9 session at Central (1:30 - 3 p.m. each day). Participants will earn volunteer hours by attending a short training session, reading to and with younger children, and helping to organize this rewarding program.

What to Expect in Post-Secondary

Everything You Wanted to Know About Post-Secondary... But Were Afraid to Ask

Senior high school students and their parents are invited to a candid and casual informational event where former KFPL teen volunteers will discuss their college and university experiences. They will answer questions about dorm life, budgeting, time management, study tips, and their struggles and successes as they navigated post-secondary life. Please register students and parents individually.
