Partners in Reading
Partners in Reading is once again looking for enthusiastic volunteers to read with children over the summer! This exciting opportunity is open to all individuals twelve years or older.
The program begins on July 2nd and concludes on August 14th with a party for all. The program pairs a student in grades 1-3 with a volunteer and they read together throughout the summer. The meetings are one hour long, twice a week and take place at the library.
This is an opportunity to meet new people, give back to the community, and gain an impressive reference for future endeavors. If you would like to volunteer, either download or pick up a volunteer registration form from the Children’s Library.
Parents of children between grades 1 to 3 are invited to contact the Library to enquire about a reading buddy for their child. Forms are available at the Library and registration begins June 2.
