    Our next session of Sensory and Movement Storytime for Kids with Special Needs (for children with physical, developmental, medical, emotional, and/or learning-based special needs) will be held on Saturday, November 1st at 10:00 am.

    If your child needs some time to become acclimated to our setting, please feel free to come at 9:45 am.

    This program precedes our Read to a Dog program at 11:00 am, in which certified therapy dogs come to the library. Two of our therapy dogs will be available around 10:40 am specifically for the Sensory and Movement Storytime, so as to accommodate children who may be more comfortable in a smaller group. All children are welcome to stay for the 11:00 am session.

    Please register below. We can't wait to see you!

    We hope school is going well for everyone! Can you believe it's almost November? Wow!

    Fall is the perfect time to practice reading with our therapy dogs. Meet Clover, Rusty, Zoe, Turner, and our new dog, Kaelin (Janie's German Shepherd Dog sister!), at Read to a Dog on Saturday, November 1st from 11:00 am to Noon. This program is open to all ages and abilities, both readers and pre-readers.

    Reading aloud to non-judgmental listeners (like dogs!) boosts confidence and improves reading and recitation skills. Moreover, reading together helps to reinforce letter recognition and vocabulary, and it creates a stronger bond with books. It's also a lot of fun! Don't believe us? Check out these great photos from our October session.

    Ready to sign up? Cool! Please register below. Woof!

    Have you read the books or seen the movie about American Girl's Felicity? (It's okay if you haven't!) Felicity was modeled on a girl who lived in Virginia during the time of the American Revolution, which took place way back in 1776. 

    Our friend Ms. Janine is coming to the library on Thursday, November 6th at 6:45 pm to present an American Girl Craft Night. Ms. Janine will talk a little about Felicity's time period and then show us how to make our own tussy wussy, which is a kind of silk flower bouquet that was popular in colonial times. Learning how and why crafts were made long ago helps us understand what it was like to grow up as girls like Felicity did. Plus, it's really fun!

    Ready to sign up? Cool! Please register below. See you soon!

    Note: Afternoon Program

    The popularity of the BBC series Downton Abbey has sparked our interest in the Edwardian era, when King Edward VII reigned over the United Kingdom. This was a time of great disparity between the haves, and the have-nots. 

    Wealthy aristocrats owned huge manor houses and reveled in luxury, leisure, and extravagant entertaining. The rich expected their every whim to be indulged, and all their daily needs to be fulfilled, by the less-fortunate souls who served as their domestic servants.

    Known as "The Golden Age," the Edwardian period began in the late 19th century. Its foundation was shaken in the 1910s as the winds of change brought a time of greater social mobility within the once-rigid British class system.

    Come learn about this fascinating time and the people who lived it. You don't need to be a Downton Abbey fan to enjoy this interesting historical presentation!
