Monthly Programs

NEW! Comics Club (Registration required)
First Thursday of every month (Oct. 6, Nov. 3, Dec. 1)
Grades 1-3

Explore comics with us! Each month, we'll read a comic book or graphic novel and talk about the story and the artwork. We'll also make comics of our own and more! Books for each month will be available at the Circulation Desk.

Paws to Read (Registration required)
Second Thursday of every month (Oct. 13, Nov. 10, Dec. 8)
Grades 2-6

Children in grades 2-6 are invited to come and meet special therapy dogs once a month to practice their reading with a furry friend. Each child is given a specific 15-minute time slot for a "one on one" with their reading dog. Children must be able to read by themselves. This program is not for tutoring or becoming comfortable with dogs, rather, it is a chance for children to become more confident readers. Caregivers may remain in the building but are asked to remain outside the reading area. Sponsored by Therapy Dogs International. *Registration will open online two weeks prior to the program date. You will be notified of your time slot by email.

Art Adventures (Registration required)
Fourth Monday of every month (Oct. 24, Nov. 28, Dec. 12)
Grades K-4

Join us for Art Adventures, an interactive visual arts program that focuses on a particular artist or style of art.  Children will learn about the artist or style and then have the opportunity to create a piece based on what they learned. Children do not need to have any special artistic ability, just a desire to learn and create! Sponsored by Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Program. Please note earlier date in December.

NEW! Try it Tuesday (Registration required)
Second and fourth Tuesdays of the month (Oct. 25; Nov. 8, 22; Dec. 13)
Grades 4-6

Every other Tuesday, join us to try new projects. Everything from art to science, we’ll experiment, explore, and create. Registration is required so we have enough supplies.
