NEW: Reading Buddies

Do you have a child who is reluctant to read, who would love to snuggle up to a giant stuffy, with their own selection of books and read aloud? Introducing Reading Buddies. We have rescued four soft and snuggly animals that love to be read to! Children will be asked to take these animals out for reading breaks (under the supervision of an adult) in order to get some one on one time to practice reading in front of a soft and friendly reading companion. Reading buddy animals are waiting to be read to: come to the library to read to one today! Please check our website and Facebook page for updates.
