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. Little buddies should be in grades Kindergarten, 1 and 2. Big Buddies should be in grades 7 - 12.
Contact Cricket for an application to be either a Big Buddy or a Little Buddy! We are currently recruiting for our Fall Session. The next session begins Thu., Oct.11. It will continue weekly through Dec. 6. We meet from 4:15 to 5:15pm.
Big Buddies need to interview and be trained by early Oct. If you are interested, please contact Cricket at email@example.com or 970-479-2179 to be ready for the next session.
