Children, Teens, and a Love of Reading

Book Buddies AldineDo you have a child in kindergarten-3rd grade? Do you want to help them develop a love of reading?
Do you have a teenager in 7th-12th grades? Does she want to be a mentor? Does he need service hours? Then he or she could volunteer to be a Big Buddy!
Harris County Public Library's Book Buddies program pairs trained teen volunteers (Big Buddies) with children in kindergarten through 3rd grade (Little Buddies). For 10 weeks, the Buddies meet once a week for 45 minutes of shared reading.
This next session at the Aldine Branch Library will run from September 12 to November 14, 2018. Training for the teen volunteers will be on Friday, September 7, from 4:00-5:30 pm. The child and teen volunteer will meet on Wednesdays from 5:00 to 5:45 pm to read together. If you’re interested, please stop by Aldine Branch Library and fill out an application for our Book Buddies program!
