Victoria Public Library Reading Buddies


If you like working with children, are a fluent English or French speaker, enjoy reading, and want to help emerging readers, the GVPL needs you!

Reading Buddies volunteers mentor children in Grades 1 to 4 with reading practice, literacy-based activities and fun. They provide training (Saturday, February 23) and, upon completion, a reference letter outlining your volunteer hours. A special French Reading Buddies session will be held at Central Branch this session.

Is this the first time you are volunteering as a Big Buddy? If so, you must attend a Big Buddy Training Session on February 23. Register for training online and do not forget to bring your completed Big Buddy Referral Form.

The Reading Buddy program runs at Emily Carr, Central, or Juan de Fuca Branches. Saturdays, March 2 – April 20, 2013 (8 weeks). 1:45-3:00 pm and/or 3:15-4:30 pm. For ages 13-18.
