Need Volunteer Hours? Like Kids and Books? Join the Book Buddies!

Sign ups have begun for the fall session of the Book Buddies at the Peace Dale Public Library. Beginning on October 16th at 4 p.m., the program will run consecutive Fridays through November 20th. (On Oct. 16th only, Teen Readers are asked to arrive at 3:30). This is a great way for students in grades 6 and up to earn community service hours.

Each week Teen Readers in grades 6 and up will meet with 3-8 year old Little Book Buddies. One on one reading is ideal, but no more than 2 Little Buddies will be assigned to a teen reader. The first 30 minutes are dedicated to reading, book selection or coloring will follow if so desired.

This is a joint program supervised by the Teen Librarian and the Children’s Librarian. Registration and a six week commitment to the program is required; register by stopping in or calling the library at 789-1555.
