readingbuddies2What 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 1-on-1 to enjoy reading and reading-related games each week for 30 minutes.
NOTE—Space is limited & based on # of teen volunteers
