Booking with a Buddy

Kids entering grades 1-3 in the fall can take part in this online literacy program that promotes reading during the summer. Space is limited. Registration begins June 20 and ends July 1.

Little buddy participants spend four hours over four weeks (July 6-July 27) enjoying reading aloud and talking about books with teen big buddy volunteers, as well as playing literacy games and doing group activities. Little buddies are matched with big buddies and meet in small groups on Mondays using Zoom.

Booking with a Buddy times are available at 11:30 am, 2 pm, and 4 pm. Meeting times are available on a first-come, first-served basis for 12 kids per session. Once you register, you will receive a personalized link allowing you to attend your requested session.

This is a four-week series. Register for only one of the times below. This will be your session time for all four weeks.

Although this program encourages reading, it is not a tutoring program and all big buddies are teen volunteers. Please contact Mandy O’Brien, aobrien@skokielibrary.info, if you have questions.
