Build-A-Bear Reading Buddies
Does your child need a Reading Buddy? The Bedford Public Library is partnering with the Build-a-Bear Workshop located at Grapevine Mills to create a fun and safe environment in which children can read. Build-a-Bear has donated six Reading Buddies for children.
Children may pick their favorite Reading Buddy and cuddle up to share a good book with their friend. Reading Buddies never criticize reading and will listen to stories all day long! Your child can read to their Reading Buddy any day of the week during library hours. The Reading Buddies will also be incorporated into the Library Buddy tutoring program for children who are working to increase their reading skills over the summer.
