Reading Buddies is a literacy program for children to practice their reading skills. Reading Buddies is offered during the summer and is open to children who have completed Grade 1 up to 12 years of age. 

With Reading Buddies, children are paired with a volunteer Reading Buddy for individual attention and help with the child’s reading skills. As children progress through the program, they receive rewards to mark their achievements. Reading Buddies teaches children that reading is a fun and rewarding experience that can be shared with family and friends.

Contact your local HPL branch to register for this program.

Please take note that this program is not designed to teach children how to read. Children must be able to read to participate in the program.
