BCPL is pleased to announce the return of Read with a Teen – our summer mentoring program. As a qualifying teen, you’ll partner with a child who is entering 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade this fall. You’ll share games, books, and conversation with your “reading buddy” for one hour each week over a seven-week period. Check-out the teen application for more information. Applications for teens are due by Thursday, May 23. Applications for children are due by Thursday, May 31. Any questions? Please contact Angie Grandstaff, 859-342-2665 ext. 8225, or firstname.lastname@example.org

As a volunteer, you will assist elementary, middle and high school students with homework assignments. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Interested?
