It is time to apply for the Franklin Township Public Library’s 2014 Summer Reading Buddies Program. This 6-week program takes place Monday evenings, at the Main Library – Children’s Department (July 7th – August 11th). Reading Buddies is a social program that promotes literacy through paired reading. Teens earn volunteer credit by helping young readers develop confidence in their reading and comprehension skills. Paired one hour reading sessions allow teens the opportunity to become mentors, and young readers the chance to make new friends while reading.
Please visit the Reading Buddies page at the top of the blog for more information.
Applications are available Thursday May 1, 2014. Space is limited, and the deadline for all applications is Thursday, June 12, 2014!
