Reading & Writing Buddies

Reading or writing with an older buddy is a proven way to bolster confidence, foster a love of books and just have fun!

How Does it Work?

Reading Buddies and Writing Buddies

In Reading Buddies regular sessions and playdates at the Library, kids have fun reading and playing games with teen volunteers. In Writing Buddies, kids and teens work together to brainstorm, write, and edit.

Library Buddies

The Library does occasional drop-in outreach sessions, known as Library Buddies, for the communities served by Boulder Ridge Mobile Home Park. To learn more about this outreach, please contact us online.
