Due to unforeseen circumstances, our furry friend Danny will not be able to read with kids today. Look for him again in February.
Kids can drop in to read to our favorite Cocker Spaniel Danny at Weaver Library on Monday, January 24, 4:00-6:00. Listening to kids read is one of Danny's favorite activities! Parents, bring your child for stress-free reading practice.
Studies have found that reading aloud to dogs improved children's attitudes toward books and increased their confidence. Dogs, relaxed and nonjudgemental, seem to help even struggling readers enjoy a book.
Registration is not necessary.

Join us for an interactive learning opportunity where young children enjoy a story, rhymes, songs, and play. Our storytime programs include the five practices of early literacy: talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing. These programs also foster attentiveness, good listening, following directions, and a love of literature and learning, all of which are readiness skills that will prepare children for success in school.
Bundle up because this program is outside.
