Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

Access to knowledge is the superb, the supreme act of truly great civilizations . Of all the institutions that purport to do this, free libraries stand virtually alone in accomplishing this …  Of the monuments humans build for themselves, very few say:  ‘Touch me; use me; my hush is not indifference; my space is not barrier’

Toni Morrison

Tail Waggers Reading Club

Event Date: 
Apr 8 2014 - 4:00pm

Join us for the Tail Waggers Club on Tuesday, April 8th, at 4:00 p.m.! Kids are invited to share reading with Elli, a “Reading Loving Therapy Dog!"

Kids choose a favorite short book or story and read aloud to Elli 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 Elli love the pictures, so even non-readers can hold up the book to show the Illustrations to everyone! To help children feel confident in their reading, they should plan to read from a favorite familiar story. Choose a book from the Library or from home.

For more information, please call the Library at: (815) 223-2341.
