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


Can you spare an hour each week to have fun and help children gain an invaluable skill?

Join the crew at our Northern Lights branch for an hour each week, and join the adventure of learning 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!

Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday
