A Book Buddy visits local childcare centers and preschools to read to children. Book Buddies prepare for each story time visit by checking out themed boxes from the library. The Book Buddy Program requires a time commitment of one or two visits a month to a site and may alternate with another Buddy, for an average time of 1-2 hours per month.
