If you know of a child between pre-school and 4th grade that needs a little extra help with their reading, we have a program for you! The Newark Library’s Reading Buddies program is in its second year and runs June 18th – August 13th. Every Wednesday from 3-5 pm we will have volunteer reading buddies available to assist younger children with their reading, either by reading to their younger bu. Registration is recommended, but not required. To register, contact the Newark Library at (510) 795-2627 or stop by the Information Desk at the Library. This is a free program.
