Children’s Reading Support Volunteers

You make reading fun

If you love reading and children, consider becoming a volunteer tutor in the Children's Reading Support program at Halifax North Memorial Public Library. Just a small commitment of time can help a child build reading confidence and a love of books that will last a lifetime.

What you'll be doing

Once a week, you'll spend 1 hour helping a child, ages 8-12, from the North End community of Halifax to develop their reading skills. The tutorials take place at the Library, where you'll have access to a variety of materials from our collection to make learning fun—books, art, technology and more! 

About you

  • No experience is necessary.
  • You're able to commit 1 hour per week during the academic year.
