Reading Buddies

Reading Buddies pairs adult and teen volunteers with elementary school aged youth in grades 1-3 for either 15 or 30 minute appointments. During the appointment, the child will practice reading with the volunteer one-on-one, and receive help and guidance with difficult words, comprehension, and other reading skills. We have bilingual volunteers available who can help in both English and Spanish. Appointments are available at the both the Downtown and Pickleweed Library locations.
