Hey, Canal Winchester! Want to Listen to a Kid Read?


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


115 Franklin StreetCanal Winchester, OH 43110
Reading Buddies
Grab a book and read with a buddy. Reading Buddies is the most fun experience in town!


Connect with the crew at our Canal Winchester 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.

OSU research that shows that every hour a child spends with their Reading Buddy increases their MAP reading test score.

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

Days: Tuesday and Wednesday

Time: 4 to 5 p.m.
