Book Buddies (Grades 1-5 & Teens/tweens 11+ years old)

Session A: Mondays, 2:30-3:00 pm

Please take note of the time you register for, as there is a second session of this program Mondays,  3:15-3:45 pm.

Live via Zoom 

This program welcomes developing and reluctant readers, and provides a space where they can work on their reading skills one-on-one with a trained teen buddy. Kids read shared materials while their teen buddies provide assistance on grammar, pronunciation, and critical thinking.

Registration is required to access the secure Zoom link. Visit Our Current Children's Programs Pages to register.

 

We are also looking for teen volunteers ages 11+ who are confident readers to serve as buddies. Contact Children's Program Coordinator, Neena McBaer (845-350-2771 or children@pawlinglibrary.org) for more information.
