Reading Buddies

Reading Buddies is a free Vail Public Library program that pairs trained teen volunteers with younger kids for a one-on-one shared reading experience.  Little buddies do not need to be struggling readers to benefit from this program, the intent is to foster a love of reading.  Reading Buddies offers a chance for friendship while providing another set of attentive ears for our young readers.  Little buddies should be in 1st – 3rd  grades   Big buddies should be in 7th – 12th grades.  Please pursue this opportunity to provide help to a little friend and boost your own leadership skills and serve your community.

Contact Cricket Pylman or Kate Ragan for an application to be either a Big Buddy or a Little Buddy! We are currently recruiting for our Spring session.  The next session begins Thursday,  Jan. 31 – March 21.   We meet from 4:30 to 5:30.

Big buddies need to interview and be trained by the second week of January.  If you are interested , please contact us to be ready for the next session.  .
