The Reading Buddies are coming! The Reading Buddies are coming!
Lane Memorial Library is preparing to launch a Reading Buddies program for students in kindergarten through high school. The program will pair younger readers with older readers—or possibly create small groups of three or four, depending on registration. These “buddies” will meet at the library to read together. Participants may choose from picture books, easy readers, chapter books, nonfiction, or any combination thereof. Readers may share the reading or assign specific reader and listener roles. Arrangements within each pair or group will be flexible to accommodate each student’s comfort level.
Sign-ups for the Reading Buddies program begin November 6 and run through November 20. There will be an initial two-session trial run on Monday, November 27 at 4:00 p.m., and Monday, December 11, at 4:00 p.m. If the trial run is successful, the Reading Buddies will then meet regularly starting in January 2007. To register, please call or stop by the children’s room at Lane Memorial Library: 926-4729.
