Held the second Thursday of each month, from 6-7pm, Read to Rover allows children to read to dogs from the Hutchinson Kennel Club/Therapy Dogs Incorporated, for at least 15 minutes. Libraries and school nationwide offer similar programs as a way to motivate children to read, to read more often, and to attempt more difficult books. These programs can especially aid struggling readers who feel more secure reading aloud in a non-judgmental setting.
Thanks for helping us "Dream Big -- READ!" with our 2012 Summer Library Program! Join us again next summer when we "Dig into Reading!" Watch for more information on all our 2013 summer activities in the Spring. (Tentative dates for registration are Friday, May 24th, through August 3rd.)
No registration is required. This program is for 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds. These 50-minute programs feature activities such as books, songs, filmstrips, finger plays, flannel board stories, and puppet plays. Preschool Story Time provides children with an opportunity to become familiar with the library's resources, and can enhance their social skills. Children have a choice of three time slots, with sessions running in the Fall (September-December), Winter (January-April), and Summer (June-July). For more information, contact the Children's Department in person or by phone at 663-5441, x145.
These are special evening programs, planned intermittently throughout the year, designed for children and adults of all ages. Programs often include special guests and crafts. For more information on these program, contact the Children's Department in person or by phone at 663-5441 x145.
