Book Buddies

Book Buddies at the Grand Prairie Public Library was created with the aspiration of bringing our community together and providing our city’s children with valuable literacy help and positive mentorship. Volunteers and students will meet once each month for one hour to spend time reading and learning together. Volunteers* will guide children through stories and encourage them to become lifelong readers. Children will leave with greater confidence and hopefully a renewed love of reading and learning. This program is for kids in grades 1-3 or volunteers 14 or older. Registration is required, please email Aerial Hobson at ahobson@gptx.org.

  • Session I: September 7, September 21, October 5 and October 19
  • Session II: November 2,November 16, December 7 and December 14

*All volunteers 18+ must go through a background check before they can work with students. Volunteer orientations for Book Buddies will take place on August 24, August 31 and October 26 at 4:15 p.m. at the Main Library.
