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 5 2013 - 6:30pm

Join us for the Tail Waggers Club on Thursday, December 5th, 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.
