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


OSU's research shows that every hour a child spends reading with you in the Reading Buddies program, the higher their MAP test score. The more reading practice a child experiences, the greater their skill level. Talk about impact!

If you have an extra hour each week to work with children, we have several Columbus Metropolitan Library branches that could use your help in the time immediately following school.

Do your part to solve the reading crisis in Central Ohio's schools.

The need for adult and teen support is especially strong at these branches: Driving Park, Franklinton, Hilltop, Karl Road, Gahanna, Linden, Livingston, Marion Franklin, Martin Luther King, Northern Lights, South High, Southeast, and Whitehall.
