Library Lawn - Outside of the Children's Storytime Room
What does gelato, juggling, and jumping have in common? It will all be part of our end of summer reading party! All readers (0-18) who participated in the Bud Werner Memorial Library's Summer Reading Challenge or Wee Reader Program are invited to a Celebration of Reading on Sunday, July 31 at 2pm on Library Lawn.
Children, ages 2 to 5, with a parent or caregiver, are welcome to Little Crafters Storytime every Monday and Friday at 10:30 am in the Children’s Storytime Room. Listen to a story and stay for a simple craft based on that book. Free! No registration necessary.
As a courtesy to others and because of the craft activity, please no daycare groups at this storytime. Groups are welcome to come to the Tuesday or Wednesday storytimes.
Kids who are already reading on their own get a chance to practice reading out-loud to the friendliest, most non-judgmental audience there is -- a trained therapy dog! Kids read by themselves for a 20-minute session with the dog and the dog's owner. Kids should be able to read independently, but not necessarily fluently (usually ages 6 and older). Sign up in advance, this program fills quickly!
