Reading Buddies

Tuesdays & Thursdays from 4 – 5 pm

Your child will increase their fluency and comprehension by reading aloud to a Reading Buddy (volunteer) for 20-30 minutes each week. Interactions support pronunciation assistance, vocabulary development, inspire confidence, and comprehension skills. After reading, stay with your new buddies for a word game or two!

  • December 3 & 17: Chemistry - Join us as we explore Non-Newtonian fluids by making oobleck! Non-Newtonian Fluids are substances that don't follow the standard law of viscosity.

Stuffed Animal Sleepover

To celebrate “Make a Friend Day,” we will host a stuffed animal sleepover. Please bring your favorite stuffie so they can make some new friends in the library overnight! When you arrive, you will make a name tag, read a goodnight story to your stuffed animal, and tuck them in for the night. Please pick up your little friends the following day (Saturday, 2/11) at 10 am and watch a slideshow of all the good times they had!
