Reading Buddies
Grab a book and read with a buddy. Reading Buddies is the most fun experience in town!

Join the team at our Karl Road branch for an hour each week, and help guide young minds as they learn to read. Children read to you for 15 minutes, and your job is to help them when they need it, challenge them when it sounds too easy, and guide them to new books and the fun of reading.

If you want to share your great love of books and reading with a child, this is the place to be!
