Materials and activities will be drawn from the Public Library Association’s “Every Child Ready To Read” and the Association of Library Services to Children’s “Born to Read” programs. Each program will be about twenty – thirty minutes long and will have time for caregivers and babies to read a book together.

    Registration is highly recommended but not necessary, though drop-ins will be welcomed provided that the class is not full. There is a limit of 10 care givers and their babies for each session. Call us at the number below, email us at the address below or stop by the Youth Services Desk in Children’s Room to sign up or get your questions answered.

    Category: EventsPaws to Read - Euchre

    Euchre1-smallEuchre and his human, Barbara Green will be available on the second and fourth Thursdays fro 5-7:00 p.m.

    Readers earn a stamp on a record card for every 15 minutes that they read to one of our dogs.  When he/she has earned 4 stamps, they will receive a "Pawsome Reader" tag to wear as a necklace or use as a zipper tag.  If readers complete a second card, they get a “Pawsome Reader” dog tag.

    The theory is, that by reading out loud to the dog, who doesn't judge how well the child reads, the child’s self consciousness disappears and she gains the confidence needed to become a better reader.

    Readers will need to schedule a 15 minute appointment at the Youth Services Desk or by calling 231-758-3112. Open or cancelled slots will be available on a first-come, first served basis.

    There is no charge for this activity.
