Big Kids Read to Little Kids

Butterfield continues “Buddies” program

Reading a book aloud is one of the best things beginning readers can do to improve their skills. Since younger children love reading to “big kids,” the Butterfield Library in Cold Spring this summer will continue to offer its Reading Buddy program.

Reading Buddies must be in sixth through 12th grades and younger children should be in kindergarten through fifth grade. Once registered, partners will be matched. The Reading Buddies will be responsible to schedule their meeting time during regular library hours and the time they spend together will be logged.
