Reading Buddies is a reading enrichment program for children in grades 1-3.
Reading Buddies is not a tutoring service.
Please attend all scheduled meetings. You are required to stay in the library during your child's Reading Buddies sessions.
Upon acceptance to the Reading Buddies program, your Little Buddy will be paired with a Big Buddy, a teen library volunteer who is trained to read with kids in a way that helps encourage a love of reading. The buddies will meet for one hour a week for eight weeks.
A 30-minute orientation will take place at the beginning of the first session. This orientation is required for you, your Little Buddy, and their Big Buddy. Please bring a few books that are just right for your Little Buddy.
Each session lasts one hour. Buddies take turns reading to each other for 30 minutes, with the remaining 30 minutes spent on activities such as writing and word games.
