What is Book Buddies?

Big Buddies are teen volunteers in Grades 7-12. You will get paired with your own Little Buddy in Grades K-3.

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

Dates: Time: 4:30-5:30 PM for 4 Thursdays on the following dates:

3/14, 3/21, 3/29, and 4/4

*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, February 29th, 4:30-5:15 pm

Or Thursday, March 7, 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 Big Buddy in a session from Spring ’22 – Fall ’23: you don’t need an orientation. 

Sign up required.
