Programs for Grades K-6
May/early June 2015

Paws to Read (Registration required)
Second Thursday of every month (May 14)
Grades 2-6

What's better than reading? Reading to a DOG, of course! 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 one week prior to the program date. You will be notified of your time slot by email.
No meeting in June.

Kids' Crafternoon
Third and fourth Thursday of every month (May 21 and 28)
Grades K-5 with caregiver

Get creative at the library! Each session we’ll use a different material to make all sorts of crafts! We'll also have coloring pages and some "free play" materials. Anything from paper to LEGO…see where your creativity takes you! Drop in and join us!
No meeting in June.

Art Adventures
Friday, May 22 (no school for Norfolk students)
Grades K-4

Join us for Art Adventures, an interactive visual arts program that focuses on a particular artist or style. Children do not need to have any special artistic ability, just a desire to learn and be creative! In May, we will be exploring pottery!
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Norfolk Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Youth programs are sponsored by the Friends of the Norfolk Public Library
