LETHBRIDGE PUBLIC LIBRARY – CHILD MINDER, READ ON PROGRAM VOLUNTEERS
LPL’s program helps adults improve their literacy skills, but sometimes finding child care while on a limited income is very difficult, so parents have to drop out. LPL needs you on
their team to mind child(ren) while their parents are
learning. Child minding takes place at the downtown or The Crossings branch. Children will be between 1-11 years of age, and volunteers would have a maximum of five children. The library has a vast collection of books and toys, for you to use while child minding. You are not required to do programming with the children, you are simply minding them while their parents are learning. Interested volunteers must be 18 years or older and can contact Elizabeth Entz at 403-380-7323 for details.
