Volunteers provide one-on-one interactive support for young readers. Ideally, children will be paired with the same big Buddy for the duration of the program. Reading Buddies foster positive social interactions, share books, practice writing and reading comprehension and play interactive literacy-based games.
Sessions are 1 hour per week, from 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM, for 6 weeks on Saturdays:
April 30, May 7, 14, 21, 28, and June 4
Parents are required to remain in the Prince of Wales Library branch for the duration of the program. Although the bulk of the program will take place in the Library our meeting location is Meeting Room 2 – Core Al Ritchie, 445 – 14th Avenue.
