    Just in time for back to school, our certified therapy dogs return for another visit! Meet Clover, Rusty, Zoe, and Janie (Turner and Marquis are on vacation!) at Read to a Dog on Saturday, September 6th 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 August session.

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

    Family program. Suitable for ages 8 and up.

    Emily Warren Roebling was called "one of the most noted women in the country" and "the most famous woman in New Jersey"... yet today, few people even recognize her name! Just who was this remarkable woman? Join us for this afternoon program on Saturday, Septepber 13th.

    Experienced storyteller Carol Simon Levin will tell us the true story of this 19th century woman who was integral to the completion of the Brooklyn Bridge - the greatest engineering project of its age. Built between 1869 and 1883, without modern machines or even electric light, the Brooklyn Bridge waqs one of the most amazing technological achievements of its time.

    But few people know Mrs. Roebling's role: How, after her husband became bedridden, she acted as his liaison to the project and helped supervise much of its construction. She later helped design the family mansion in Trenton, studied law, organized relief for returning troops from the Spanish American War, attended the coronation of the Tsar of Russia and even took tea with Queen Victoria!
