Leading Readers

Learning to read can be tricky, but it can always be fun!

Our Leading Readers program is designed to help struggling or reluctant readers discover the joy of reading in a comfortable environment.

How it works

  • Leading Readers is typically open to children in Grades 1-5, but some locations offer the program to primary students too.
  • Your child will meet once a week with a trained teen volunteer who will help them practice reading, play educational games, and explore books through fun activities.
  • You'll need to sign up in advance by calling your branch number below.
