Attention parents: Does your child (in Grades 2 to 4) need practice reading?
Sign them up for the Coast Capital Reading Buddies program at Surrey Libraries. Your child can improve his/her reading skills in a safe, non-threatening environment over six weekly after-school meetings.
Trained high school students offer their time and expertise by “buddying up” with a child to read together and engage in fun literacy activities.
