Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

Congratulations to your library on its Centennial year.  …when I was little I wanted most of all to learn about new things.  I visited the local library every week and checked out the maximum number of books, which was then 12.  Six would fit into each of my bike baskets.

Kids are invited to share reading with Ellie, a “Reading Loving Therapy Dog! Kids choose a favorite short book or story and read aloud to Ellie for about 5 minutes.  Kids not yet reading independently are welcome to read to the dogs and the group with the help of their adult caregiver.  Both the audience and Ellie love the pictures, so even non-readers can hold up the book to show the Illustrations to everyone!  To help chil dren feel confident in their reading, they should plan to read from a favorite familiar story.  Choose a book from the Library or from home.
