New Children's Books
We are excited to announce that Book Buddies will be returning! Unfortunately, due to today's circumstances, Book Buddies will be a one-on-one virtual program this year using the virtual conferencing platform you and your buddy choose to use. The program will run from July 5 through July 30, 2021. You will meet with your Book Buddy once a week for approximately 30 minutes. If you and your buddy choose to read longer or add an additional day or two, that is fine! Books read can be counted toward the JPL Summer Reading Program.
Older Buddy volunteers - Grades 6-12, Younger Buddies- preschoolers ages 3 to Kindergarten. Registrants will be matched with an older/younger buddy and will receive notification via email. Any questions or concerns, please email the Children's Room- email@example.com.
Studies have shown that reading aloud to children is an important factor leading to an appreciation of literature and learning to read.
