About Book Buddies
Book Buddies is designed to help 1st-3rd grade readers who are having challenges with reading. Book Buddies creates a mentoring relationship between a teen and a child to increase the child’s reading confidence and skills while allowing the teen to earn volunteer hours.
Book Buddy sessions will run every week on Thursdays from 4:30-5:30 p.m. The summer program will run Thursday, June 13 through Thursday, August 8.
