Tail Waggin’ Tutors
Saturday, 9th & 23rd @ 1:00 p.m.

This program provides a relaxed and “friendly dog” atmosphere that allows students with reading difficulties to sit down next to a trained companion dog and read without any threat of being judged by peers. Reading improves because the child is practicing the skill of reading, building self-esteem, and associating reading with something pleasant.

Story Time
Weds @ 10:00 a.m.

Bring your little ones! We will be having someone read a story or folktale. It will be very interactive with audience participation.

If you’re looking for a particular title, be sure to ask our staff. We have more inventory in our warehouse. We also do special orders!
