February Events!

Come in out of the snow and visit your library this month. Check out these highlights from our February calendar:

Chess Club is back! Mr. Bud from Million Youth Chess Club will be visiting the 1st and 4th Monday of every month to teach kids how to play chess and take on challenges from any kid chess whiz who thinks he can beat him!

Storytime! This month, we're diving into our favorite fairytales. Read along with us, make a mask craft so you can retell the stories at home, then watch a special puppet show! Perfect for little ones!

Clara, our licensed therapy dog is coming back! On February 12 at 4 pm, Clara and her handler Susan will visit and help kids read books. Clara is a trained therapy dog that listens to children read to her. All across the state, libraries are using therapy dogs to help children gain confidence in their literacy skills. Your child may be nervous or intimidated to read aloud in class or to you, but Clara the dog is non-judgmental and patient, so kids eagerly read to her and gain confidence page by page. After you read to Clara, make a craft at Crafty Corner!

Our next Block Party is on February 13 at 4 pm. Use Legos, blocks, connector straws and more to create fun gizmos and whirligigs. Enter our contest for tickets to the Gizmo Guys juggling show hosted by the Miller Centre for the Arts.

Valentine's Day is almost here! Make valentines and hear some heart-warming stories at the library on February 14 at 4 pm!

Do you love Dora? Join us for our Dora Fiesta where we celebrate the adventures of everybody's favorite exploradora with stories and party games. Enter our contest to win tickets to the Reading Public Museum's next interactive exhibit, Dora and Diego: Let's Explore!
