Wee BuildHands-on learning builds strong brains! For babies through age 6. No registration needed. Just drop in between 9:30 am and 11:00 am on Fridays for open play and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) building activities. 

WEE BUILD

Come build with us! Through play, your child discovers shapes, learns how blocks can be balanced, observes how they fall, and discovers what fits together. These playful explorations are the foundation of later mathematical and scientific thinking – plus it's fun!

Thank you to Commonwealth Libraries for a grant that provided our library with the awesome Wee Build blocks and toys.

Read to DogsRead to Dogs is held Tuesdays in the library lower level for children up to age 12. Reading to a friendly dog allows children to practice their reading skills in a comforting environment to build their confidence. Register for a 15-minute time slot: 4:30 pm, 4:50 pm and 5:10 pm. Click here to register.

TUESDAY EVENINGS
THREE TIME SLOTS:
   4:30 - 4:45 pm
   4:50 - 5:05 pm
   5:10 - 5:25 pm

Please bring a book with you to read, or stop by the library early to choose one!

Only one adult per child entering the reading area please. The lower level gets quite crowded with dogs and readers, and we want the children to be able to read with minimum distraction. Thank you for your understanding.

Dogs used for this event are supervised by experienced therapy dog owners.

Learning to read isn't always easy. Reading to dogs can help!
•    Reading aloud can feel daunting to some children, so reading to a dog who doesn't judge them is comforting and a great way to practice.
•    Reading to dogs is a fun experience so children look forward to practicing reading rather than thinking of it as a solitary exercise.
•    Reading to a dog and petting dogs relieves stress and helps to calm nervous readers.

Questions? Feel free to call the library at (717) 486-3688 or email amelia@cumberlandcountylibraries.org
