Are you looking for volunteer opportunities, community service hours, or like working with kids? Then the Reading Buddies Program is perfect for you! We will provide letters of recommendation and you get a free t-shirt! Volunteers must be in grades 6-12.
We are looking for students currently enrolled in K-2nd grade to participate in the Reading Buddies Program this summer. The Reading Buddies program is designed to give children extra reading practice one-on-one with a teen mentor and to make the reading experience fun! We will be celebrating reading by doing creative projects and programs, as well as providing some snacks and giving away prizes!
The first session will be Monday, June 3rd, 2019 and the program will end on Tuesday, July 30th, 2019. You may choose to have your child attend one session each week on either Monday or Tuesday. You may also choose to have your child attend only the June session or only the July session or both sessions. All sessions are an hour and a half each week. Monday sessions are from 4:00-5:30 pm and Tuesday sessions are from 6:30-8:00 pm.
Parents are responsible for transporting their child to and from the library. We will have an awards ceremony at the end of each month to celebrate how well the kids are doing in the program.
