Book Buddies logo, two people reading

The Avon Library will be running 3 Book Buddies meetings this summer:

Thursday July 9th, 16th, and 23rd.

Reading times 4-4:30 PM, 4:30-5 PM, or teens can sign up to volunteer for both.

Kids entering 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade can sign up to read to the Big Buddies, and have the Big Buddies read to them.

This program will be held in a Zoom meeting.


What do the teens need to be a Big Buddy?

Sign up ends at the end of the day on Monday 7/6.

Teen is entering Grades 7-12, or is Class of 2020 member.

Teens should have patience when working with little kids!

Teens need a device (computer or laptop, iphone, Android phone, etc.) with Zoom downloaded AND a camera or webcam.  **Chromebooks from Avon Schools do not allow Zoom to be used on their device.**

Be available: Thurs. 7/9, 7/16, and 7/23 between 4-4:30, or 4:30-5, or both time slots.

Have picture books and early readers in their home OR plan on just being read to by a child OR place a curbside pickup order,  before 7/9, from the Avon Library by calling (860) 673-9712, and ask the Children’s Department staff to gather materials for you.
