Big and Little Buddies

Do you want to help your Elementary-aged child develop a love of reading?  The Maud Marks Library can help with that.  This fall we are starting a new program called Book Buddies.  Book Buddies matches children with trained adults to share the joy of reading.  Starting Monday, September 11 at 4:45 pm, the Buddies will meet once a week for 10 weeks of 45 minutes of shared reading.  The program will end with a party on November 13.

If this is something you might be interested in for your child, applications are now available at the Maud Marks Library.  For more information, please come in or call 281-492-8592 and speak with Naomi Haught or Charity James.
