Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

When I was a young boy, my local library was a place of sanctuary and wonder.  … Often, after collecting a dozen or more titles, I would curl up on the floor at the end of the darkest aisle and spend the day devouring my finds.  There, surrounded by the towering stacks, I found the gateway to the entire human world.  May your journeys here be as wondrous.

Oct 8 2013 - 4:00pm

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.
