Paws for Stories April 14

Dansville Public Library is celebrating National Library Week April 8-14 with Paws for Stories — with a Therapy Dog on Saturday April 14 at 10 a.m.  The program is open to all children, but if your child is reluctant to read due to difficulty or shyness, this book program is a good opportunity to encourage reading aloud.  Children can read to a calm, supportive, and attentive dog brought to the Library by “Tail Waggin’ Tutors.”  The fun of reading to a friendly, and trained, therapy dog takes the pressure off the child to perform and helps makes reading fun! For children ages 3-12.  Space is limited so please call or stop in the library to register.    Therapy Dogs International supports “Tail Waggin’ Tutors” to encourage reading and improve literacy for children.   For more information call 585-335-6720.

During the “quieter” months of the year, the Library presents Family Movie Night on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m.  Come on April 24, enjoy the show, have pizza and a beverage.  Bring a cushion to sit on, or use our comfy chairs.  Sponsors of the final movie program are Bill and Norma Forsythe and Tony’s Pizzeria.  For more information call 585-335-6720 or stop in at the Library.
