Teens seek book buddies

Members of Patten Free Library's Teen Library Council hope to help nurture a love of reading in young children by making and publishing picture books about them.

Registration is now open through Friday for "All About Me," an event in pairing local teens with children ages 4 to 8 to serve as book buddies for the process of creating their stories.

The first meeting of the book buddies program will be held Oct. 17. 

Teen volunteers will read a favorite picture book to their buddy and interview them to get ideas for their book. After the first meeting, the teens will take a week to produce the stories and then share them with their buddies when they are finished.

The books will either be handmade or produced with one of the publishing "apps" on the library's iPads.

Participants may register by calling Carol McFadden, children's librarian, at 443-5141, Ext. 17 or email
