Cheers 4 Lethbridge is a new initiative designed to encourage everyone to work together to make Lethbridge an amazing city for all of us to enjoy.
“We’re asking everyone to do 4 things that will make a positive difference, big or small, and then spread the word about the great things they have done,” says Terra Plato, CEO of the Lethbridge Public Library. “Volunteer, pick up litter or participate in a project, there are so many simple ways that people can make a positive difference in their community.”
The library is looking for teens to review books over the summer! Apply now!
For every accepted book review, you'll receive 5 hours of volunteer credit, to a maximum of 25 hours over the summer. You can review whichever books you like - old favourites, new discoveries, comics, audiobooks - anything! Reviews can be submitted in written format, as art projects, or as short videos.
Are you 8 - 13 years old?
Do you love gaming? How about game design?
Join the Lethbridge Public Library and the Code:mobile for a 3 hour workshop on game design with Scratch. As a group, kids will explore the basic game design process: from idea, to execution, and testing. They will create their very own game!
