This popular summer program celebrates its seventh year at the Canton Public Library. Each teen volunteer is paired with 1 or 2 children for for an hour a week, passing along the fun of reading and discovering books.
Orientation week is June 29th and 30th, and then Book Buddies begins in earnest on July 6th and 7th, and runs for 6 weeks through August 11. We end on August 10th or 11th with a pizza party celebration. We ask that volunteers be available for at least 4 of the 6 sessions plus a one-hour orientation.
Your weekly volunteer commitment would last about 2 hours in total.
ORIENTATION IS REQUIRED before the first day you act as a Book Buddies with the children.
