Reading Pals Program

What is the Reading Pals program?

The Reading Pals program provides free help to elementary children (grades 1-5) who are experiencing difficulties with reading and/or writing through fun activities and/or tutoring sessions.

Please note that the first session of Winter 2022 Reading Pals (January 10 - February 18) has moved to at-home delivery, and there are still spots available! Read below for details.

English Reading Pals: Winter 2022

Reading Pals has made the decision to switch to an at-home delivery format for Winter Reading Pals Session One (January 10th-February 18th). Spots are still available, and due to the nature of the delivery of this program, teacher referral is not required.

What is included:

  • Book Bundle: The book bundle is a bundle of curated books selected to fit your child's interest and reading level. Books will be selected and will appear as holds on your library account and will be held for 10 days.
  • Literacy Kit: A literacy activity package that is designed to make literacy and reading fun and interactive. These activities are also great to complete as a family.
