What do we do? We meet, read together, and we make an art project each week.

10/19, 10/26. 11/2, 11/9
*We ask Big Buddies to arrive 15 minutes early to gather books to read with their buddy*
Registration required. When you register you sign up for all four Book Buddies dates!
New Buddies must attend a 45 minute orientation.
Choose one date to attend:
Thursday, October 5, 4:00-4:45 pm** Slightly earlier time**
Or Thursday, October 12, 4:30-5:15 pm
New Big Buddies or past Virtual Big Buddies: need to take the in person orientation. You will go through a quick training which includes learning the layout out the Children’s floor and where to find the best books for your Little Buddy.
If you were a Spring ’23 or Spring ’22 or Fall ’22 Big Buddy: you don’t need an orientation.
Sign up required.
