Henry Louis Gates solves the mystery of their paternal ancestry and introduces them to relatives they never knew they had.

PAWS for Reading
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Come read to Buster and his friends!  Certified therapy dogs and their handlers will be on hand to help new readers, struggling readers and those who just want to read to the dogs.  Therapy dogs don't judge how well you read, they are just happy to listen--which is great for practicing those reading skills without the judgment of a teacher or parent.  Each child is given a 15 minute time slot.    Open to holders of New City or West Nyack Library cards. 

Call to reserve your time slot beginning one week before the event.
