Barrister Book Buddies, 2023-2024

August 21, 2023 @ 8:00 am - May 1, 2024 @ 3:00 pm

Barrister Book Buddies Returns for 2023-2024!!
In 2019-2020 the RBA celebrated the 20th year of Barrister Book Buddies. Due to COVID the program was put on hold until it was safe to resume in-person events. The Roanoke City Schools has asked us to return for 2023-2024. We currently have more than 40 teachers who are looking for a Buddy this fall. The elementary schools are: Hurt Park,  Preston Park, Morningside, Fallon Park, Lincoln Terrace and Virginia Heights. We are asking for volunteers to register now to ensure we have enough volunteers when school begins in August.

Each Book Buddy is asked to read for an hour, at least once a month.  You may read more often if you wish.  Once the assignments are made, it is the responsibility of the Book Buddy and the teacher to contact each other and determine the schedule.

If you have a preference for school and/or grade, please note that on your registration. 

Every attempt will be made to honor your request, but that will depend upon the needs of the schools.  We appreciate your willingness to help wherever you are needed. We encourage you to sign up for this award-winning community service program and make a difference in a child’s life.

We appreciate your participation and look forward to re-starting the Barrister Book Buddies.

Registration for 2023-2024 is closed.
