Category: EventsPAWS to Read - Roo

1337971681RooRoo and her human Kim Brown will be available on the third Thursday of the month from 3:30-5:00 p.m.

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.

The Chess Gang hosts a monthly Family Night so that club members may play in a tournament environment and/or play their parents.  Most of the Family Nights will be the third Thursday of the month in the Carnegie Building (the "Old" library across the street) from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

The next PDL family chess night is scheduled for Nov. 20 at the Carnegie Building from 6:30 to 8:30 upstairs. New ‘unrated’ players are welcome ages 8 through adult. It’s   “kid’s bring an adult night” and parents are encouraged to play as well as being asked to stay and supervise younger children.
