Reading with Tivy, Vi or Brazen
NEW DAY! Mondays, 3 - 5pm: October 6 - November 24
(except for October 13 - Library Closed)
Ms. Marilyn Thayer and her credentialed family therapy pets, Tivy, Vi and Brazen invite children to practice and improve their reading skills. Ms. Marilyn's dogs love having children read to them and are very loving and accepting of all individuals. Children will be able to read in a relaxed and non-judgmental atmosphere. Each 20-minute session will include a meet and greet and then reading time. Please feel free to bring your favorite books to read or to borrow some from the library.
Call or come into the library to sign up for one or more sessions. You can sign up for multiple sessions, but please do so for only 2 or 3 weeks at a time so we can accommodate as many participants as possible.

It's a block party every Tuesday afternoon! LEGO building bricks and DUPLOs are available for kids of all ages to build with and have fun. A different challenge is presented each time.
