Barrie Public Library, Painswick Branch - 48 Dean Ave
Barrie
Your primary role as a storyteller is to provide a positive reading experience for the student. Developing literacy skills requires patience from you, the volunteer, and your buddy. This is a time to share books and stories together. Ensure that the child is doing a variety of different activities and keep the sessions light and fun. Children will learn best if the material is relevant to them and suits their needs. Be enthusiastic and creative and encourage the child to be creative as well.  
 
Check in at the Volunteer Office (Downtown) or Cupboard (Painswick) 15 minutes before the start of the program, get your nametag and go to the Children’s Department. Check in at the Service Desk and get the Reading Buddies bin. The Service Desk staff are available to help you with book selections and any other questions you may have while you are volunteering with the Reading Buddies program. All Buddies will have a folder; please fill out the Reading Buddies Record each week indicating the book titles you read together – a great way to champion their reading success.
