City Reads Book Club.

PAWS for Reading!
On Monday, March 17, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., read to a therapy dog at the library. Kids can read aloud to a therapy dog in order to improve reading and communication skills. Children read individually to trained therapy pets (and their handlers) at the library where they can feel comfortable and confident — and have fun. Kids will get prizes along the way for each time they read to our therapy dogs. Registration required. Please call the library or sign up at the Children’s Desk at the Main Branch.
Minecraft for Kids.
Every Tuesday from 4 to 6 p.m., kids in grades 3 to 5 can face Minecraft challenges and competitions while they enjoy snacks. Sign up at the children’s desk or call 243-2436.
Children in grades 1 through 5 can explore their world on Wednesdays from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. On March 19, kids will participate in a treasure hunt and take home prizes.
The Lions and Lambs preschool story time will take place on Wednesday, March 19, and Thursday, March 20, at 10 a.m. If you have questions, please contact children’s staff at 243-5436.
