Book Buddies

book-buddy-400x267Adult Volunteers

The Bartow County Library System has expanded the Book Buddies program to the Hands of Christ After School Program at First Presbyterian Church in Cartersville. We need adult volunteers to engage in reading sessions with children in grades K-5. The child will read to their Buddy for 30 minutes and receive a FREE book to keep. Through this program, we plan to provide the children with a fun and positive reading experience that will help to strengthen their literacy skills.

For more information, contact our adult services librarian at ext. 139 or
