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 one hour 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.Library: Skokie Public Library
BOOKING WITH A BUDDY time slots are scheduled for Mondays and Thursdays 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 27 through Monday, August 1. By preregistering online, you have saved your child a space in the program. You will still need to complete a full program application, which is due back to the library by Monday, June 6. If you register online or over the phone, you will be mailed an application.
