Book Buddies Reading Program

The program pairs teen volunteers (Big Buddies) with children in Grades 1st, 2nd and 3rd (Little Buddies) to assist young readers. Book Buddies allows young readers to practice reading out loud and provides support and encouragement to help build reading comprehension skills. 

The Book Buddies Program meets once a week, every Wednesday from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM in the Children's Room. Register today!
