Reading Buddies

Beginning Thursday, Jan 30th   –  March 19 ( No Reading Buddies Feb 20th)  4:30 – 5:30

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, 1st and 2nd grades.  Big buddies should be in 7th – 12th grades.

Contact Cricket Pylman at 970-479-2179,  for an application to be either a Big Buddy or a Little Buddy! We are currently recruiting for our Winter session.  The next session begins Thursday, Jan  30th.  It will continue weekly into March, ending the 19th.   We meet from 4:30 to 5:30.
