Wonderful certified therapy dogs return to the library Tuesday afternoons in October! Dogs are nonjudgmental listeners, providing a comfortable audience for both beginning and proficient readers. Proven to help with fluency, it’s also just plain fun. Sign up for a 15-minute slot between 3:45 and 4:45 Tuesday afternoons. (No session February 20th)

Everyone’s favorite, Dr. Seuss, would have been turning 114 on March 2nd!

This is a fun celebration for the whole family with Seuss stories, craft, game and snacks. Please join us!
Every Thursday afternoon from 3:00-8:00, all devices are turned off in the Kids’ Library to give everyone a needed break from screens. There are plenty of other things for kids to do: board games, coloring, craft projects…and BOOKS!! We’ll love to be your haven.
Keep in mind… “Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.”
