Reading Buddies is a free Vail Public Library program that pairs trained teen volunteers with younger kids for a one-on-one reading experience. Little buddies do not need to be struggling readers to benefit from this program. Reading Buddies offers a chance for friendship while providing another set of attentive ears for our young readers.
Contact Cricket Pylman for an application to be either a Big Buddy or a Little Buddy! We are currently recruiting for our Autumn session. The next session begins Monday, September 19 and continues weekly until November 14. We meet from 4:30 to 5:30. We will not meet on Halloween!
Big buddies need to interview and be trained the first or second week of September. If you are interested and missed the deadline, please contact us to be ready for the next session.
