Teen Services - Programs for Teens
Community Service Opportunity: Reading Buddies

Volunteer to read with a child. Young readers will register for a 30 minute time slot, then the library will pair them with a teen volunteer to read together, sharing their love of reading while improving skills.

Teens going into grades 6-12 can sign up to volunteer for 30 minutes, an hour, or more. This is NOT a tutoring program. Volunteers are meant to encourage young readers and give them confidence.

This program will take place every Thursday from 4:00 pm-7:00 pm starting June 29. For more information, contact Joanna at jgoldfarb@rcls.org.
