Reading time with Elphie!
Therapy dog in-training, Elphie, and her wonderful trainer, Jules, are coming to the Story Library most Saturdays at least through the end of January! We are looking for children who would like to read to Elphie for half an hour. If interested, please call the Library (683-2922), or stop by to sign up for either 10-10:30 or 10:30-11! (It’s great fun!) Elphie is a beautiful black lab, and a good listener, even though she may fall asleep from time to time! Here is a photo of her with one of our great readers!
Book Discussions Coming Up
We are reading novels that are set in the World War II time period for this set of discussions, proved by the Claire Yorks Reading Series and the Sheridan County Public Library System. We meet the first Monday of each month. We read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak for the January 4th discussion and are now reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Burrows and Shaffer for our February 1st discussion. We will read All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr for March 7th and Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut for April 4th. We would love to have you join us!
