Resume Review for Teens

The North Battleford Library is having a resume review session for teens to help them apply for summer jobs! Teens are invited to come to the library on June 8th between 1:00 and 3:00pm for help with their resumes and cover letters. Resumes can be brought on paper or USB sticks, and we’ll be here to go over them with you. No registration required, as this is a drop-in program.

Blind Date with a Book

Blind Date with a Book begins tomorrow! Throughout February, come to the North Battleford Library and choose a mystery book to read. Then, rate your “date” and enter for a chance to win a prize! We’ve got a variety of books for you to choose from, and will be adding new ones as they get checked out.

Quick Writing Sessions for Teens

Here at the North Battleford Library, we’re in the process of developing a writing session idea, and would love to hear what you think!

The idea is that we get together and write something based on a given prompt. Afterwards, teens can share what they’ve written, if interested, and have positive feedback, or constructive criticism of their work. No dissing allowed, no tearing apart another’s work; this is to help us all become better writers for school, or just for fun.

Any thoughts? We’d love to hear them!

Trivia Tuesday

The library is holding a trivia night on November 6th! Teams of 2-4 must register by calling us at 306-445-3206. Come enjoy a fun night of testing your knowledge of seemingly useless facts that we all tend to build up in our brains. Prizes will be awarded to the team who gets most answers correct and the least answers correct. So grab a few friends and make a team. Hope to see you there!
