Trained teen volunteers listen to children in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade who want to practice their reading skills. Teens will ask questions about the book to encourage comprehension. Teens may read to or with children as well. Children enjoy one-on-one interaction with teens, who create a positive reading experience for beginning readers. First come, first served. If there is a line, there will be a 15 to 20 minutes limit.
This program is also a Read Away Your Fines program. Fines on juvenile accounts can be eliminated when the juvenile account holder reads during Reading Buddies. Every 15 minutes of reading will deduct $5 of fines.
Free Program. One-on-one help.
Note: Reading Buddies will not meet on July 6.
