Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo
“Raymie Clarke has come to realize that everything, absolutely everything, depends on her. And she has a plan. If Raymie can win the Little Miss Central Florida Tire competition, then her father, who left town two days ago with a dental hygienist, will see Raymie's picture in the paper and (maybe) come home. To win, not only does Raymie have to do good deeds and learn how to twirl a baton; she also has to contend with the wispy, frequently fainting Louisiana Elefante, who has a show-business background, and the fiery, stubborn Beverly Tapinski, who’s determined to sabotage the contest. But as the competition approaches, loneliness, loss, and unanswerable questions draw the three girls into an unlikely friendship — and challenge each of them to come to the rescue in unexpected ways”. – GoodReads.com

Read to a Dog
Monday, October 17
Between 4:00 and 5:30 PM
Chase, our new reading dog, is a Collie/Australian Cattle Dog mix. He loves kids and snuggling and loves to be read to. Chase worked at another library before he moved to this area and he misses his job. Let's give him a warm welcome and show him how much we appreciate our reading dogs here at the Rosemary Garfoot Public Library. This program is for all ages of children, and is particularly valuable for reluctant readers.
Chase has a very interesting story of his own. His owner, Jenny wrote a chapter about him in the book Love, Animals & Miracles, by Dr. Bernie Siegel & Cynthia Hurn. Read his story here.
Sign up for a 15 minute reading appointment with Chase by calling the library, at 608-798-3881.
