After school help for kids! 

Book Buddies will run from January 29, 2024 to March 30, 2024. Exception: No program the week of February 19.

Does your child need extra reading support?  We are here to help.  Book Buddies provides FREE support for children who are experiencing reading difficulties or need help building their reading confidence. There will also be a few sessions for French Immersion readers.
