Tail Waggin’ Tutors Saturday,
14th & 28th @ 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.
