Reading Buddy Volunteer Club

PROGRAM IS ON-HOLD FOR NEW VOLUNTEERS AS WE WORK TO REVAMP AND REVISE CRITERIA FOR VOLUNTEERING IN THE PROGRAM. This program pairs a teen reading buddy volunteer with a child who is learning to read. Volunteers in the Caldwell Public Library Reading Buddy program must be highly reliable and self-motivated. We are pausing to make sure we are running the program in a way that best serves the needs and wants of both the teen volunteer and their little buddy.
