R.E.A.D with Dani - THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELLED

THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELLED

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.*

This lapsit storytime is for babies not yet walking and their caregivers.  Babies will enjoy nursery rhymes, simple stories, songs, fingerplays, and movement.  This program is designed so that caregivers can focus solely on their infants and caregiver participation is encouraged.  Each 20 minute session is followed by playtime and social time.  Registration is not required for this event.  Attendance is limited to 15 babies and their caregivers on a first-come first-served basis.  It is requested that families with older siblings attend our "Stay & Play" or "Sing-Along Stories" programs, which better serve the needs of children who are walking.

R.E.A.D with Dani - THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELLED

THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELLED

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.*
