The Wilmington Memorial Library is excited that Book Buddies is back for the 5th year in a row! Book Buddies is a literacy program that pairs kids ages 4+ with teen volunteers for one-on-one reading fun.

Over the course of the six-week program, kids can practice reading or be read to, receive one-on-one attention from a trained teen, share a snack, and do a fun activity.

Book Buddies is Fridays, 3:30-5 pm (including time to set up and clean up). Teen volunteers must attend all six weeks of the program. The program takes place on March 2, 9, 12, 23, April 6 & 13. Additionally, volunteers are required to attend a Book Buddies program orientation on Thursday, March 1 at 2:30-3:30 pm
