Children entering grades 1-3 in the fall can participate in this fun literacy program designed to promote reading outside the school year. "Little buddy" participants spend 10 hours over 5 weeks reading with "big buddy" volunteers who range from junior high school students to senior adults. Space is limited, and the last day to register is June 4. For children entering grades 1-3 in the fall.

Little buddies meet on Mondays and Wednesdays in the Youth Services Department. Little buddies are matched with big buddies and time slots will be assigned based on the availability of big buddy volunteers.



Shortly after you register for this program, a library staff member will contact you to gather more information. Please note that although this program encourages reading, it is not a tutoring program and all big buddies are volunteers.
