Reading Buddies pairs teen Caldwell Library volunteers (Grades 8-12) with young readers (Grades K-5) in the Caldwell-West Caldwell public schools who would like to practice their reading skills.

They meet 1-on-1 to enjoy reading and reading-related games for regular 30-45 minute sessions.

Flexible Meeting Schedule

Reading Buddies can meet anytime during Caldwell Library’s hours of operation at a mutually convenient weekly time for the teen and the Little Buddy’s family.
