Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

'I love books.  I like the way a book feels.  I like the way a book smells.  I like to turn each page, read each word, look at the pictures.’  I wrote those words in a book because of my wonderful, unforgettable first visit to a library.  It opened up a world to me – a world of surprises, magic, fun, mystery, excitement, and all the information I would ever need to write my books.

Tail Waggers Reading Club

Event Date: 
Dec 3 2013 - 4:00pm

Join us for the Tail Waggers Club on Tuesday, December 3rd, at 4:00 p.m.! Kids are invited to share reading with Elli, a “Reading Loving Therapy Dog!" Kids choose a favorite short book or story and read aloud to Elli 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 Elli 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.
