Reading Buddy Program

Reading Buddy Program

Posted by Jennifer on June 21, 2019

Are you looking for an opportunity to encourage your child to read, while also instilling a sense of passion and excitement when it comes to reading? If so, the L.E. Shore Library is proud to introduce a literacy program designed to assist and encourage children with reading difficulties by motivating and providing a positive reading experience for them.

Reading can seem like a scary experience for children, especially those that are not confident in their reading abilities. In such cases, it is often very helpful to have a child read with someone that is not their parent or their teacher. This often provides the extra motivation to get kids really excited about reading!

 We here at the L.E. Shore Library would like to encourage you to ‘book’ time throughout the summer for your child to have a one-on-one reading session with our children’s programmer Jen or Adia, our summer student. This is a fantastic opportunity to keep them reading through the summer months and instill a passion for reading.
