LittleBigRead is an informal “reading buddies” program for school age youth that pairs younger kids with older kids for one-on-one reading time. Younger kids can read to or be read to by older kids or they can take turns sharing a book together. This program is a fun and no-pressure way for children to build a passion for reading for the fun of it. It is not a tutoring program. Books are chosen by the readers from the library’s collection or favorites can also be brought from home. No registration necessary – just drop in and read!
