R.E.A.D. with Franny

Children in grades K - 3 may register to read to Franny, a certified therapy dog, for a 15-minute session!  This program provides an opportunity for beginning and/or struggling readers to practice reading aloud to improve their reading skills.  Animals are ideal reading companions because they listen attentively; do not judge, laugh or criticize; allow children to proceed at their own pace; are less intimidating than peers.

Franny and her handler have been trained in the R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dog) program, which improves children's reading and communication skills.

Each child may bring their own book or choose one at the library before their session.

*Registration is required for a specific timeslot and will begin one month before the program.  If the timeslot you would like is unavailable, please call the library to put your name on a waitlist*

*If your child's grade falls outside of the parameters for this program and there are special circumstances which would make this program beneficial to your child, please call the Children's Services Librarian at 203-452-2850 x 2930.*

Sensory Storytime

Ages 3 - 6 with a Caregiver.  Sensory Storytime is an interactive program that can be enjoyed by all children, but is especially designed for children on the autism spectrum, those who are sensitive to sensory overload or have other special needs, and those who have difficulty sitting through a traditional storytime.  A parent or caregiver is required to attend with their child.  Participants will enjoy stories, songs, and a variety of sensory activities. Because this is a specialized storytime, registration is required for each session and is limited to 8 children, with priority given to those children for whom this program is designed.

Sensory Storytime will be led by Jessica Horvath, a certified speech-language pathologist.  This program is funded by a grant from The Weller Foundation.

R.E.A.D. with Dani

Children in grades K - 3 may register to read to Dani, a certified therapy dog, for a 15-minute session!  This program provides an opportunity for beginning and/or struggling readers to practice reading aloud to improve their reading skills.  Animals are ideal reading companions because they listen attentively; do not judge, laugh or criticize; allow children to proceed at their own pace; are less intimidating than peers.

Dani and her handler have been trained in the R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dog) program, which improves children's reading and communication skills.

Each child may bring their own book or choose one at the library before their session.

*Registration is required for a specific timeslot and will begin one month before the program.  If the timeslot you would like is unavailable, please call the library to put your name on a waitlist*

*If your child's grade falls outside of the parameters for this program and there are special circumstances which would make this program beneficial to your child, please call the Children's Services Librarian at 203-452-2850 x 2930.*

Book Discussion

 

This month's selection is All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai.

“In this imaginative debut, Tom Barren’s version of 2016 is a technological utopia based on a model popularized by 1950s science fiction. There are flying cars, robot maids, jet packs, teleportation, ray guns, and space vacations. Unfortunately, an accident causes Tom to travel to an alternate timeline, socially and technologically backward - in other words, our own 2016.” (Publishers Weekly)    

 

Come share a lively discussion with us. Copies of the book are available for checkout at the front desk one month prior to the discussion date. No registration necessary.

R.E.A.D. with Dani

Children in grades K - 3 may register to read to Dani, a certified therapy dog, for a 15-minute session!  This program provides an opportunity for beginning and/or struggling readers to practice reading aloud to improve their reading skills.  Animals are ideal reading companions because they listen attentively; do not judge, laugh or criticize; allow children to proceed at their own pace; are less intimidating than peers.

Dani and her handler have been trained in the R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dog) program, which improves children's reading and communication skills.

Each child may bring their own book or choose one at the library before their session.

*Registration is required for a specific timeslot and will begin one month before the program.  If the timeslot you would like is unavailable, please call the library to put your name on a waitlist*

*If your child's grade falls outside of the parameters for this program and there are special circumstances which would make this program beneficial to your child, please call the Children's Services Librarian at 203-452-2850 x 2930.*

Have you always wanted to write a book, story, poem or memoir? Everyone has a story to tell. Join us on the third Tuesday each month from 6:30 to 8:00 pm for an opportunity to finally get those ideas out of your head and onto paper (or laptop.) We welcome all types of writers who aspire to publish and anyone else who would like to spend an hour in a safe, nurturing environment creating and sharing their work. Seniors are encouraged to document family traditions and personal anecdotes to pass on to loved ones.  No registration necessary.
