The New Orleans Public Library in partnership with 826 New Orleans’ Early Literacy Initiative, LitUp!, presents Reading Buddies x Wee Write. Through peer-to-peer mentoring relationships, teens and young students will collaborate each Wednesday afternoon during the Fall Season around reading and writing.
