Read to a Dog
Read to Chase!
Mondays - Oct 23, Nov 20 & Dec 18
Between 4:00 and 5:30 PM
Chase, our reading dog, is a Collie/Australian Cattle Dog mix. He loves kids and snuggling and loves to be read to. 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.
Thursday, October 26 - 1-3 PM
Want another chance to wear your Halloween costume? Join us for a fun celebration on this afternoon off from school. We'll watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, play some pumpkin games, make trick-or-treat bags, decorate pumpkins, and eat some pumpkin treats!
