Event Details

Book Buddies is a fun literacy program for elementary school students. Children will be paired with a teen volunteer for a fun and positive reading experience. Book Buddies provides an opportunity for children to practice reading, improve their literacy skills and have fun with books. Each session is 30 minutes long. Children are encouraged to bring their own books but the library will also have some available. For children in Kindergarten to 4th grade ONLY. Drop in! First come first serve. We can accommodate approximately 5 children per time slot. Please note: The CPL Book Buddies program is not a tutoring service. Teen Book Buddy volunteers are neither expected nor trained to correct learning problems, or to teach children to read. Once children have bonded with a Book Buddy, we will make every attempt to pair him/her with that teen again. We cannot guarantee the same pairing.
