Teen Volunteering

Looking to build up some volunteer hours over the summer break?

The library has some fun opportunities for you starting this July, and continuing through the school year:

  • Join the Street Team to help plan programs and promote library events!  
  • Build picture book bundles for our children’s spaces!
  • Join our Tumblr squad and help keep lplteenzone.tumblr.com updated!

There will be two training sessions for teen volunteers – one at each library branch. You must attend one or the other to register as a teen summer volunteer.  

Teen volunteer positions are open to anyone going into grades 7-12 this September.


Community QSA

Looking for a safe space?  Want to support LGBTQA rights?

In partnership with The MAT and OUTreach, the library is now hosting a monthly Queer Straight Alliance meeting on the last Wednesday of every month.  The meetings are open to anyone ages 16-21.

We meet in the Community Meeting Room of the Main Branch at 7:00pm.

You can also connect with the group on Facebook.


Teen Summer Reading Challenge

It's time for the 2017 Teen Summer Reading Challenge!

This year, we're going with Gene Luen Yang's Reading Without Walls Challenge.  To complete the challenge, you must read three books by the end of the summer:

  1. Read a book about a character who doesn’t look like you or live like you.
  2. Read a book about a topic you don’t know much about.  
  3. Read a book in a format that you don’t normally read for fun. This might be a chapter book, a graphic novel, a book in verse, a picture book, or an audiobook.

When you're done, fill out the form to tell us about what you read, and you'll be entered to win a summer prize pack.  You can also tag @lplteenzone on Instagram with pictures of the books you read for bonus entries.  The titles of and thoughts about the books you read will be shared on our Tumblr for everyone to read.

The challenge is open to anyone in grades 7-12 in Lethbridge.



Bowties Are Cool

Are you a fan of Doctor Who?

We have a fan club just for teen Whovians.  We meet the last Friday of every month at the Crossings Branch at 3pm.  Cosplay encouraged!

Note:  There will be no meeting in May due to staff meeting the afternoon of May 26th.


Sugar High Book Club

Are you an avid reader in grades 9-12?
Then you should join Sugar High!

We talk about whichever books we're reading and loving (or maybe not loving) and make mini book review videos for the library's YouTube channel.  A great place to meet new reading friends and find out about your next great read.

We meet the third Wednesday of every month at the Main Branch.
