Summer Book Buddies
During Summer Vacation your child going into in grades 1-8 can keep up their reading skills by reading aloud to a teen volunteer. Summer Book Buddies meets for 50 minutes once a week during June and July. Registration for the summer takes place in May.
School Year Book Buddies
School Year Book Buddies gives your child in grades 1-8 practice reading aloud to a teen volunteer for 35 minutes every other Tuesday at 4pm throughout the school year. The Book Buddies will meet in the Youth Services program room and read a book of your child’s choosing, in the department. Due to low registration, we will not be having a Fall 2018 Book Buddies program, but it is expected to return in the winter.
