Reading Buddies

Reading Buddies pairs teen volunteers with young readers for maximum learning and maximum fun!

Teens ages 13-18, do you like to read? Become a Reading Buddy and read with a reluctant 1st-3rd grade reader. Earn community service hours!

Parents of struggling readers ages 6-9, your child may benefit from reading with a trained teen buddy. Together, they'll play games, choose books appropriate for your child's reading level, read, and review to increase reading comprehension.

A new session starts soon! Applications are available in the children's/teen area. See any youth librarian for details.

Reading Buddies are available at the James H. LaRue Library in Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Parker and Philip S. Miller Library in Castle Rock. Find the location best for you.
