R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dogs)This program encourages children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener and a furry friend to read to that will lie next to them and enjoy the story being read. This is a great way to promote positive reading. Over time your child’s reading ability and confidence can improve, which will make them enjoy reading even more. Every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 4 – 6pm in the Youth Services Program room. Sign-up is required.
Family MoviesEvery 3rd Saturday of the month at 10:30am and every 4th Tuesday of the month at 5:30pm we will show a G or PG rated movie in our Youth Services program room. Join us for the movie and refreshments. No registration required.
