Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

I could not write my books without the library’s help.  Even with the ease of Internet research, I find books to be indispensable when I am writing.  …  Books make me laugh, cry, and think.  They give me insight into history, and into the lives of people in other cultures.  They help me make important decisions, and they provide endless entertainment.  Hooray for libraries!

Oct 8 2013 - 4:00pm

Kids are invited to share reading with Ellie, a “Reading Loving Therapy Dog! Kids choose a favorite short book or story and read aloud to Ellie for about 5 minutes.  Kids not yet reading independently are welcome to read to the dogs and the group with the help of their adult caregiver.  Both the audience and Ellie love the pictures, so even non-readers can hold up the book to show the Illustrations to everyone!  To help chil dren feel confident in their reading, they should plan to read from a favorite familiar story.  Choose a book from the Library or from home.
