Little Buddy signup for Fall 2020 Virtual Book Buddies

Fall 2020 Virtual Book Buddies is coming!

What is the Book Buddies program?

Little Buddies (kids in Grades K-3), practice their reading skills on teen volunteers, Big Buddies.

Little Buddies get to grow a love of reading, practice their skills, and connect with different teen big buddies.

We will play a group game for the first part of the meeting, then assign buddies to Breakout Reading Rooms. Buddies will have up to 40 minutes to read together in the Breakout Rooms.

This program will meet on Zoom.

Who are the Big Buddies? Teen volunteers in Grades 7-12.

Time: 4:00-5:00 PM 

Dates: Thursday October 15th, 22nd, 29th, and November 5th.

Check your schedule that you can attend all 4 meetings!
