Book Buddies

Would your child like extra time listening to stories? Would your beginning or struggling reader like extra practice reading?

We will try to match your child with a teen or adult volunteer to share the joy of books. Buddies meet in KidSpace at the Library once a week during the summer for an hour. Children must be able to attend at least 4 weeks during June and July.

Sign up your child by filling out the application here! Questions? Email or call 847-663-6628 or 847-663-6622.
