7/9 Summer Book Buddies Little Buddy
Thursday, July 9, 2020 at 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
What is Book Buddies? Elementary kids, ie Little Buddies, practicing their reading skills on teen volunteers, ie Big Buddies.
Little Buddies get to grow a love of reading, practice their skills, and connect with cool big teen buddies.
Teens will have books to read; children can bring their own books to read.
The Avon Library will be running 3 Book Buddies meetings this summer:
Thursday July 9th, 16th, and 23rd.
Sign up separately for each week. You can sign up for 1, 2, or all 3!
Choose your reading time:
4-4:30 PM OR 4:30-5 PM
Great! Who can sign up?
*UPDATE: now for kids entering Grades: K, 1, 2, 3, and 4.
Do you have siblings? Great! Each one can be signed up for their own time slots, 4-4:30 and 4:30-5 PM.
How will this program be held?
This program will be held in a Zoom meeting. An adult should be nearby during the child’s reading session.
