Reading Rockstars Volunteer

Do you like to rock and love to interact with kids?

Share your love of reading and technology knowledge with elementary school-aged children by assisting EPL staff with Reading Rockstars, an after-school program delivered in select schools.

Reading Rockstars gives kids the opportunity to learn about the Edmonton Public Library, explore books and other library materials, and participate in fun literacy-building games and activities.
