Reading & Writing Buddies

  1. Summer 2020 Update

    Due to the COVID-19 closure, there are no in-person events or programs at the Lafayette Library. Visit our calendar for virtual events, find book recommendations on our Books & Beyond Blog, or in our catalog, use our online library, or view all service updates and resources.

Reading or writing with an older buddy is a proven way to bolster confidence, foster a love of books and just have fun!

How Does it Work?

Reading and Writing Buddies

In Reading Buddies regular sessions and playdates at the Library, kids have fun reading and playing games with teen volunteers. In Writing Buddies, kids and teens work together to brainstorm, write, and edit.

Library Buddies

The Library does occasional drop-in outreach sessions, known as Library Buddies, for the communities served by Boulder Ridge Mobile Home Park. To learn more about this outreach, please contact us online.

How Do I Sign Up?
