Reading Buddies


Program suitable for kids from grade 1 through grade 6.

Are you concerned about your child’s reading level? Are you having trouble getting them to read stories? If so, let us pair them with a reading buddy at the Library. Studies show that reading with a buddy not only makes them a confident reader, it also builds self-esteem. By reading aloud, children not only practice reading but also fluency and benefit from reading in front of an audience in an authentic way.

We have recruited a wonderful team of teenage volunteers, in English and French, who are ready to be matched with your child and become their reading buddy.
To be matched, please email or call 613-446-5680 ext 204

Please note that a match is not guaranteed. We accept applications and work with our volunteers to ensure a match.
