The purpose of the Literacy Buddy Project
is to teach children about correspondence,
communication, and promote early literacy while
providing children with quality books that they
take home. The project also supports parents as
partners in their children’s learning. For many
of our children, a Literacy Buddy provides the
only opportunity for them to have books of their
own at home.
you like to become a literacy buddy to a child
in our community?
is easy. Anyone, any age, anywhere can become a
Literacy Buddy and it doesn’t take much time,
but makes a large impact in the life of a child.
All exchanges between Buddy are done by mail,
sent to the child care site and using first
names only. Many Literacy Buddys are winter
residents of our community.
Exchanges occur three times per year.
