NORTH WEBSTER — If your child is hesitant about reading out loud, let them practice their oral reading skills with a lovable certified therapy dog at North Webster Community Public Library.
Paws-to-Read is held at 4 p.m. every Tuesday. By signing up for a private 15-minute reading session with a therapy dog, children can gain confidence in a fun and non-judgmental environment. Reading sessions are by appointment only, with four appointments available each week. To schedule a reading session, contact the youth services department
It is never too early to instill the love of reading in children. Lapsit Story Time is designed to introduce infants and toddlers to early literacy. Through stories, songs and meaningful play, young children and their parents or caregivers experience the joy of learning at 11 a.m. every Tuesday and Friday in person at the library. Information about early literacy resources is provided along with the opportunity to network with other parents.
Although it might seem too early to think about Christmas shopping, the season will be here soon. Friends of the Library will be taking orders for Christmas gift packages starting Oct. 29. Eight themed gift packages will be on display at the library where orders can be placed on a sign-up sheet. Priced from $35 to $75, there will be gift packages for children, families and adults to choose from. Ordered gift packages will be available for pick-up at the library from 2-6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 24, and Thursday, Dec. 3, and must be paid for with cash or check when picking up. Proceeds from the sale will go to support the work of the library. Get a jump on your Christmas shopping while supporting the library.
