Reading Buddies

Reading Buddies is a reading enrichment program for children in grades 1-3.

Our summer 2023 program is now full.

We will be accepting applications for the fall program in August.
  • Reading Buddies is not a tutoring service.
  • Please attend all scheduled meetings.
  • You will need a Douglas County Libraries library card. Get a card if you don’t already have one.
  • Upon acceptance to the Reading Buddies program, your Little Buddy will be paired with a Big Buddy, a teen library volunteer who is trained to read with kids in a way that helps encourage a love of reading.
  • Space is limited and your participation in the program is not guaranteed until all applications have been reviewed and we have been able to match your child with a Teen Big Buddy volunteer.
