Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

As a shy, introverted, scholarly child (long ago) I don’t know what I would have done without libraries!  My family moved often.  I was always the new kid in town.  The library always offered me my first and most important friendship: the place where I felt right at home.  I still feel that way today, about libraries.

Tail Waggers Reading Club

Event Date: 
Nov 7 2013 - 6:30pm

Join us for the Tail Waggers Club on Thursday, November 7th, at 6:30 p.m.! Kids are invited to share reading with Tillie, a “Reading Loving Therapy Dog!" Kids choose a favorite short book or story and read aloud to Tillie 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 Tillie love the pictures, so even non-readers can hold up the book to show the Illustrations to everyone! To help children feel confident in their reading, they should plan to read from a favorite familiar story. Choose a book from the Library or from home.
