Reading Buddy - Rocklin Library
At the Rocklin Library, we have a Reading Buddies program where teens (14-17) read to children. We have the program once a week (Tuesdays, 4-5:00 PM), all year long. After about an hour training session and submission of County volunteer paperwork, the teens are qualified. We don’t have regular training sessions, it’s based solely on interest. When I get about three submissions from Volunteer Match, I schedule an orientation. The training consists of a review of the collection, sign-in procedures, and I prepare them to read by having participants read to me and the group.
