Author Program for Michigan Reads Book
Additionally, children may meet the author of “Acoustic Rooster and His Barnyard Band,” Kwame Alexander, at a special preschool program at the Boyne District Library on Thursday, October 23 at 10:00 a.m.
Parent Child LapSit Story Time
Parent/Child LapSits and last about 30-45 minutes. Parent or Caregivers need to bring the child and sit together to enjoy developmentally appropriate stories, songs (accompanied by banjo and ukulele); finger plays, flannel board presentations and a weekly visit from Puff the Magic Dragon. These programs are targeted at children 18 months to three years old. Information about parenting, literacy and other family related subjects will be shared periodically during the program.
Due to the developmental needs of this age group, it is preferred that siblings do not attend if at all possible. However, nobody will be turned away if bringing a sibling is the only way for a child to attend. Bringing toys is also discouraged. This is a “drop-in” program and no sign-up is required.

PAWS to READ - Euchre
PAWS to READ-Euchre
Euchre and Barbara Green will be available on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.
All PAWS activities are held in the Children’s Room.
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 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.
