Teen Services Summer Reading: Reading Buddies

Reading Buddies Program


medalForm for teens to volunteer for Reading Buddies.
Form for parents to sign-up their children.

Teen Services is looking for enthusiastic teens and little buddies for our coming Reading Buddies session.

Students of all ages enjoy teaching and learning from one another. The Reading Buddies Program involves a group of teenagers reading one-on-one with a group of children every week. You'll read books together, tell stories, play word games, write stories - anything to help younger children become better readers.

Reading Buddies is for teens who love reading and volunteering. Teenagers  are an ideal role model for children. And one of the best ways to prepare and support young children for success in school is simply to read aloud with them.

To start off our program we will have a training session that will last about four hours. It will take place Mondays, June 26th, 2:00-3:00 pm. Any Reading Buddies who participated over last years Summer Reading won't have to retake training.

Please remember that by doing Reading Buddies you are committing to weekly sessions from June 26th-August 21st. Do you want to do Reading Buddies, but can't make the scheduled time frame, please let Teen Services know. We want you to read, and will try to accommodate slight schedule differences.

To comply with NH Department of Labor Regulations, those 12 and over must get a Employer Request for Child Labor Form filled out. These can be obtained from the library. Fill out the form with your parent/guardian. Then you and your parent/guardian will have to go to your SAU school office with your birth certificate or evidence of date of birth, and have it signed by the school. The school will then issue a NH Youth Employment Certificate. Those 16 and 17 years old will need to have a Parental Permission form completed.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

Parents of younger children, we'd love for you to sign up your child for Reading Buddies, fill out the this form and return it to the library. You can also speak with Ms. Paulina or Ms. Wendy.

Reading Buddies (Teen/Kids Summer Program)

For Teens:

I am still looking for volunteers for our Reading Buddies Program. 

The Reading Buddies Program involves a group of teenagers reading one-on-one with a group of children every week. You'll read books together, tell stories, play word games, write stories - anything to help younger children become better readers. 

To start off our program we will have a training session Tuesday, June 30th 5:30-7:30 pm. I will be providing Flatbread pizza.

Teens commit to 5 sessions of reading on July 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th, & Aug 3rd from 4:00-4:30 pm.

To comply with NH Department of Labor Regulations, I will have to have those 12-15 get a Employer Request for Child Labor Form filled out. The form is obtained from the library. Then both teen and parent will have to go to their SAU school office with a birth certificate or evidence of date of birth, and have it signed by the school. The school will then issue a NH Youth Employment Certificate which comes back to the library. 

If you are interested in being a Reading Buddy, please contact me ASAP for the proper forms and further information. Call 926-3368 or email stacycmazur@gmail.com  

For Parents:

I are still accepting sign-ups for children 5-8 years old for Reading Buddy. Please be aware that the aim is to have one teen for one child, so space is limited. If you're interested in signing up your child, please contact me directly via email at stacycmazur@gmail.com or call 926-3368. We can take down your name and information, and will try our best to match your child with a teen.
