Parents, do you have a new reader in the house? Are you fearful that just as your child is “getting the hang of it,” school will dismiss for summer and they will backtrack? Perhaps your child is struggling and would benefit from continued coaching. Or maybe your child is excelling and you want an outlet that allows them to continue to soar.
In collaboration with Green Iowa Americorps, Hiawatha Public Library is offering Reading Buddies, free reading support to kids on Wednesdays during June and July. If your child would gain from a shared reading experience with an enthusiastic and encouraging buddy, sign up beginning May 1. Follow the drop down Reading Buddies link under the Youth tab. You may register for one 30 minute session a week. Space is limited so register soon!
