Summer 2021 Virtual Book Buddies sign up for Little Buddies!

What is the Book Buddies program?

Little Buddies (kids in Grades K-4), practice their reading skills by reading to their Big Buddies. Big Buddies will also read to their Little Buddies. Little Buddies get to grow a love of reading, practice their skills, and connect with teen big buddies.

We all meet together for the first 10 minutes or so of Book Buddies and play simple group games in Zoom. Buddies will have up to 40 minutes to read together in their own Breakout Rooms.

Teen volunteers entering Grades 7-12 will be the Big Buddies. We will try to assign the same big and little buddies week to week.

Things Little Buddies need: 

-Be available: Thursday 7/15, 7/22, 7/29  between 4:00-5:00 PM.

-We ask an adult be nearby during this program for safety and in case of technical issues.

-Children need a device (computer or laptop, iphone, Android phone, etc.) with Zoom downloaded AND a camera or webcam.

-Lots of books to read! The library is open Mon. – Thurs. 10-7pm and Fri. & Sat. 10-5pm (in June). Come in and get new books!
