Read to Rosa Returns Monday, June 6; Read to Digby Premiers June 20!
Perfect for kids who love both dogs and reading
Sign up today for this popular program for new and emerging readers, which takes place the first Monday of each month during the school year. Rosa is a gentle English Setter who, accompanied by her owner Marsha Barden, loves to sit on the floor and listen to stories. (Sometimes Rosa's sons, either Grover or Louie, come to the library instead.) Each child may sign up for a 20-minute time slot between 3:00 and 5:00. Give us a call, send an e-mail, or stop in to register.
NEW! Read to Digby Starts Monday, June 20. We're happy to announce
that we are now able to offer this popular program twice a month.
Rosa will continue on the first Monday (though she takes July and August off)
and Digby, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel, will be with us on the third Monday,
including July 18 and August 15.
Call or stop in to sign up for a 20-minute time slot between 3:00 and 5:00.
Our next meeting will be Monday, June 13, 5:15 pm
