We'll be reading the exciting true rescue/survivor story set in Greenland, Frozen in Time. Sign out books now for the May 8 discussion.  

 

Read to a Dog

Kids can read a book of their choice to a fuzzy, friendly, trained therapy dog, accompanyied by a trained handler. To sign-up for a 15 minute time slot, call or stop by the library. Geared to readers ages 5-10. Certain Wednesdays 3:15-4:15.

Preschool Story Time Series

Story Time is from 9:30 - 10:30 on Tuesdays. Geared for children ages 0–6 and their caregivers. Story time builds and reinforces early literacy skills including listening, narrative, math concepts, sequencing, and social skills including sharing, pariticaption and taking turns. Story time also provides important social interaction for the child (and parent/care giver)! Check the calendar for the fall schedule.

PJ Story Hour

This is held every first Thursday of the month from 6:30 - 7:30.

"Crafternoons" and After School Maker Series

Crafternoons are the fun craft afternoons for kids ages 6 and up led by local artist Nicole Vance. Always a super fun project and result! Enrollment limited, register early. Our After School Maker Series is designed for slightly older kids. Please pre-register for both.
