Description:
 BOOKING WITH A BUDDY will be back for another exciting summer at Skokie Public Library! Children who will enter 1st through 3rd grades in the fall can participate in this fun literacy program designed to promote reading outside of the school year. "Little Buddy" participants spend two hours each week for a 5-week period reading with "Big Buddy" volunteers who range in age from junior high school students to senior adults. Please note that while this program encourages reading, it is not a tutoring program and all "Big Buddies" are volunteers.
This year, little buddies will meet two days a week on both Mondays and Wednesdays in the Youth Services Department. "Little Buddies" are matched by Youth Services staff and time slots are assigned based on the availability of "Big Buddy" volunteers.
BOOKING WITH A BUDDY will run from Monday, June 30 through Wednesday, July 30. By registering online, you have saved your child a space in the program. We are registering online only. Please click the link listed below to register your child.


For kids entering grades 1 through 3 in the fall. Registration is required and begins May 15. Space is limited.
