Little Owl/Wise Owl

The Little Owl/Wise Owl Reading Program, started in 2013, pairs up younger readers in grades 1-3 with teens in grades 7-12 for weekly one-on-one reading.

Program Mission: To enhance the literacy skills of Milton’s youth and to guide students in learning skills and gaining knowledge that will help them reach their personal and educational goals and become life-long learners.

About: Designed to help younger readers improve and/or maintain reading and comprehension skills while increasing confidence and enjoyment in reading.

Designed to also give the teen volunteers a service-learning opportunity, allow them to develop employment, social, and mentoring skills, and give them a chance to interact positively and independently with children.

The Little Owl/Wise Owl Reading Program is the winner of the 2023 Wisconsin Library Association’s Programming Innovation Award.
