Book Buddies

Book Buddies is a new weekly program for children ages 6 to 12 and teens ages 16 to 18. The program is designed to pair teens with young readers in order to share the joy of reading. The teens in the program will serve as reading mentors for the younger children. Book Buddies meet at the library for one hour each week in order to read together and work on a craft or literacy game. Parents of the younger children must stay in the library during the program. Book Buddies begins on October 15, from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM, and will continue every Wednesday. Please stop by the library to sign up.
