                                Book Buddies

                     The   Summer  Session of Book Buddies at the Woonsocket Harris Library will be  held  on Wednesdays July 12, 19,and26 @ 3-4 pm in the Children’s Program Room.

Each week Teen Readers aged 12-17 meet with Little Book  Buddies   entering  1st and 2nd grade  for one on– one  reading , coloring and puzzles. This is a great opportunity for teens to mentor younger children and fulfill community service hours. It is necessary for  the  teens  and  younger children  to sign up prior to the start of the program because we try to match a teen buddy with a little buddy for each session.    It is also a good way for early readers to practice their reading skills. Both groups should register at the Children’s Room Desk or call 769-9044 ext. 2.  Registration begins on Monday 6/26/17.
