What is Reading Buddies?

Reading Buddies pairs teen Caldwell Library volunteers  (Grades 8-12) with young readers (Grades K-2) in the Caldwell-West Caldwell public schools who would like to practice their reading skills. The teen and his or her Little Buddy meet one-on-one to enjoy reading and reading-related games for a weekly half-hour session.
NOTE—Space is limited & based on # of teen volunteers
