Improve your reading skills and make a new friend by reading aloud to a specially trained "listening" animal! The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) program works to improve children's reading and communication skills by providing registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handler (as a team)to meet with and listen to children read. *Allergy Alert! The dogs and cats are live animals.*
Learning to read begins BEFORE your child starts school - as a matter of fact, it begins at birth! Delight and stimulate your baby with songs, a story and activities. Get to know other families and help your baby develop listening and language skills.
Early literacy begins with you! Help your preschooler develop the five early literacy practices that every child needs to succeed. Nurture a love of reading through books, music, activities, and Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) elements.
Art is for everyone! Bring your baby, aged 12-24 months, to the library for an afternoon of creating art. This is led by Miss Callie Duritsa, a local with experience in fine arts. Limit 10 children. REGISTRATION REQUIRED.
