    This program precedes our Read to a Dog program at 11:00 am, in which certified therapy dogs come to the library. Some 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.

    Practice your reading this summer!

    Meet Clover, Omega, Janie, Zoe, Turner, and Rusty at Read to a Dog on Saturday, July 11th from 11:00 am to Noon. This program is open to all ages and abilities, both readers and pre-readers. Feel free to read together as a family!

    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 June session. 

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