The mission of The New York Public Library is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities.
We are currently transitioning our Homework Help Program to a Reading Buddies model.
Reading Buddies will:
Pair with children to read together for 20-30 minutes in order to help the child complete the reading log portion of their homework.
Activities may include:
Reading to their buddy
Being read to by their buddy
Discussing what their buddy read
Times we need help are : Monday through Thursday 3pm - 6pm, possible Fridays and Saturday afternoons and also Sundays at Bronx Library Center after 2pm.
We are recruiting for 3 locations: Bronx Library Center and Kingsbridge Library in the Bronx and New Dorp on Staten Island.
Please apply if you are able to make a once a week commitment for at least six months.
