Activities & Programs

Paws to Read is a program designed to improve the literacy skills of children from every reading level with the assistance of registered canine reading companions in a fun and relaxed environment.  The dogs, family pets representing many breeds, and their owners have been certified in pet therapy.

Summer Reading Club takes place in June, July, and August and includes tracking the amount of time spent reading or being read to. When participants meet their weekly one-hour goal (but we encourage much, much more!) they can return to the library and enter to win a prize! All entries received through July 22 will be put into a grand prize drawing for a very special Bookmobile Party for two lucky participants from each of the library’s locations. The winners will receive a party package (for up to 9 of their friends!) complete with a visit from the big blue bus, a craft project, refreshments and a story.

Each week, materials will be available for a different "make & take" craft, such as toilet paper roll bumble bee, a clothespin fish, and a dump truck. The Summer Reading Program mascot, Carl the Construction Cone, will be hidden in a different location within the library each week. Those finding him can enter a drawing to win a prize. A prize will also be awarded to the winner in our weekly “Guess How Many in the Jar” contest.
