Paws 4 Stories

Hey kids on Thursdays in July and August join us for Paws 4 Stories! Kids who love dogs but not reading will read to a St. John Ambulance Therapy dog for 15 minutes. The dogs will sit and listen to you read. This will build confidence to read out loud with a encouragement from a furry friend!  Kids will need to register for their 15 minute spot. 

Paws 4 Stories is for ages 5 – 12.

Kids need to register for these programs. Space is limited to 6 kids per week. 

Every Thursday from 1-2:30 p.m.

Blooming babies storytime is a storytime made just for you and baby!

Join the Children’s Librarian for songs, stories and rhymes made just for little ones. We made this a shorter storytime with more songs and rhymes to capture baby’s attention. Siblings are welcome to join the fun. Meet in the Children’s area every Tuesday at 10:30 am.
