Tail Waggin’ Tales
Fridays 3:45. Registration required.
This popular program that allows children learning to read to practice by reading aloud to one of our volunteer therapy dogs this May. The dogs are good listeners, and they won’t interrupt or correct the reader. It has been proven that, over time, therapy dog literacy programs help boost the reader’s self-confidence and improve overall reading and communication skills.
Each week, a group of Minecrafters meet at the library to build worlds together or play in a game or a challenge. The Club uses Pocket Edition over the MML wireless. Players are welcome to bring their own devices or we do have a limited number of devices to borrow. Courteous gamesmanship and adherence to Club Rules is expected.
