One of our most popular children’s programs this year has been the Tell Tales Reading Program. With the assistance of Therapy Tales volunteers (and their dogs) dozen’s of children have spent some time in our Library reading aloud to the patient “listening” dogs, from a selection of books available to choose from. We will be offering this program again on Thursday May 17th from 3:45-4:30, and it will be resuming again in the fall 2012. The program is free, for ages 6 and over but registration is required. For more information, drop by or call any of our 4 Library locations and register.
