"Little Buddy" participants spend one hour each week reading with "Big Buddy" volunteers ranging from junior high school students to retirees. BOOKING WITH A BUDDY will run from Monday, June 27 through Thursday, August 1. Pre-registration begins May 1.

photoBOOKING WITH A BUDDY time slots are scheduled for Mondays and Thursdays in the Youth Services Department. Little Buddies are matched by Youth Services staff and time slots are assigned based on the availability of Big Buddy volunteers.
