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 in our Autumn session. The next session begins Monday Feb 29th and continues weekly until April 18, 2016. We meet from 4:30 to 5:30.
Big buddies need to interview and be trained the week of February 22nd. If you are interested and missed the deadline, please contact us to be ready for the next session.
