Computer Buddies Volunteer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 31 March 2018
Very easy and fun volunteer work. For computer and reading buddies, you get partnered up with a student and you basically help them with computers and reading! If you have no idea what you are doing, the coordinator will help you out in any way. Overall, these volunteer programs help with your leadership and communication skills.
Page (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 March 2018
This was my first job, I applied when I was starting high school and I stayed for 2.5 years. The staff is amazing and has a very friendly environment. My co-workers became like family to me. We took care of each other. I didn't want to leave my job, but I was in position for ages 14-17. Once I turned 18 I lost my job.
I was a volunteer at this workplace but according to people whom work at the Calgary Public Library it is a grate pace to work at. It is a competitive and fast paced workplace which helps pass the time.
Fun place to mentor kids into a new world of thinking or sloving problems
Volunteer Work (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 December 2017
The Calgary Public Library is such a postive, quiet and fun place to be in. There are a lot of events that occur throughout the year and I’m so happy to say I’ve taken part in them. I help kids with either math or functions of computers and it’s really shaped the way I see things now. I have become more patient with others. I hope I continue taking part in these opportunities to mentor kids.
Volunteer for Creativity Club (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 August 2017
It was simple to get into, and well managed, especially considering the club was new to the library's programs. It was a very relaxed environment, aside from when some of the kids got more rowdy, but overall, it was quite calm.

As a volunteer I only work on for an hour and a half a week on Saturdays. Its a rather enjoyable experience, as the students are always keeping things interesting. The other volunteers are easy to work with.

It is super easy to volunteer at the library. The staff is super warm and polite. There is a cute coffee shop located right inside the library to it's perfect to just go in and sit down while reading a book.
ESL conversation club (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 July 2016
great place to volunteer. Volunteer and Staff are very helpful. The environment is a great place for personal growth. You get to work with different people which is a bonus. The CPL is a great place to work if you have a laid-back personality.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 30 January 2016
Volunteering at the Calgary Public Library was an exciting challenge that both myself and the seniors/kids. They were very friendly and energetic, always ready to learn new things. I provided a concise set of instructions for them to follow and they did so accordingly. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know a wide range of people, from kids, to seniors. It was an overall exciting program that I would not hesitate to do again.

Repetitive tasks despite which you learn to attend some patrons. Environment of friendly manager and co-workers where the hardest is unload boxes with items and the enjoyable is perform pick list in order to get holds for clients.

I really enjoyed volunteering here, my volunteer supervisor was amazing and was very understanding with my commitment to school.
