Help your child be a better reader, build their confidence, and boost their love of reading.

Sign up for our Reading Buddies program

Reading Buddies are early readers (students in Kindergarten through Grade 3) and teen volunteers from our community who get together to read to each other.

Studies from around the country have shown that pairing teens and young children for one-on-one reading practice helps promote fluency, improve reading skills, and increase self-esteem.  

Buddies will meet at the Mount Pleasant Main Library at a time that is convenient for both you and the teen volunteer.  

If you are interested please register here


*Please note: Teen Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age to volunteer at the Library.
