Reading Buddies

Be a part of something special!

Pairing teen volunteers with younger kids for an hour of one-on-one shared reading, once a week!

This program is for Little Buddies (students in grades 1-3) and Big Buddies (teen mentors in grades 9-12).  Buddy pairs read together, play reading-based games, and participate in group activities.  The purpose of Reading Buddies is to provide a leadership, responsibility, and community service opportunities with high school mentors helping to foster a love of reading in elementary school students.  You can participate in Reading Buddies at either the Avon, Eagle or Gypsum Public Libraries. Sessions meet once a week for 8 weeks. Sign up today!
