Motivate your reluctant reader to practice their skills and enjoy reading with Book Buddies!
Children in grades K-3 who are struggling or reluctant to read are Little Buddies who will be paired up with specially-trained teen volunteers Big Buddies. Big Buddies will contact Little Buddies to set up weekly socially-distanced in-person or digital meetings. The Library will host a monthly check-in for all buddies on Zoom to share how its going and to recommend new titles for the buddies to share.
To participate, fill out a Little Buddy or Big Buddy profile, and Mrs. Bengson will contact you soon. If you have any questions, please email Diane Bengson, Teen Services Librarian, firstname.lastname@example.org.
This service is debuting Summer 2020. Please subscribe to the library's newsletter and follow us on social media for updates.
