Book Buddies is a literacy program implemented by GJHP, which lasts 10 weeks on either Mondays or Wednesdays from 4:00pm-4:40pm at the Glencoe Public Library. The program runs in the fall and spring. Book Buddies pairs students in K-2nd grade with a 5th-8th grade buddy to mentor them in the area of literacy. Book Buddies insures all of the participants have fun, build reading skills, develop personal connections and complete the program with a great sense of pride and accomplishment!
The spring 2017 session has already started and is completely full. The next Book Buddies session will start in September 2017. More information to come in the fall.
