From Candy Sushi to Duct Tape to Tech, we’ve got it all… if you’re over 10! Second Wednesday of every month from 4:00-5:00.

PAWS To Read – Read to a … dog?? Yes! Research has shown that when children read aloud to dogs their skills & confidence increase. The dog is an uncritical listener as the children explain the story and work through their vocabulary and comprehension. Space is very limited, so if you would like to reserve a spot, please call the Children’s Dept.

Chess Instruction – Join chess expert Cheri-Ann Parris and learn how to win at chess! Cheri-Ann offers basic instruction to advanced techniques for children of all ages.artvan2
