Streetsboro library story time sign ups begin Jan. 6

Published:

The Pierce-Streetsboro Library will be accepting registrations for Winter Story time starting Jan. 6.

"Little Listeners" for children age 2 to 5 will meet on Tuesdays at 11:15 a.m. or Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m., beginning the week of Jan. 27 and ending the week of Feb. 24. Story times include stories, music, crafts, puppets, finger plays and flannel board stories. This is an excellent way to acquaint children with the library, foster a love for reading, and help children become ready to read when they enter kindergarten.

To register for these story times, call the library at 330-626-4458.

Read to a Dog set for Jan. 11

The Pierce-Streetsboro Library will present its "Read to A Dog" program Jan. 11 at 11 a.m.

Parker, a licensed therapy golden retriever, will be available to hear children practice their reading. Children may choose library books to read to Parker, or they may bring their own books.

According to Therapy Dogs International, some children who have trouble learning how to read, or who might be self-conscious about reading in front of classmates or teachers, can be helped by reading to a non-judgmental, patient therapy dog. It's fun for the children and can serve as an incentive to keep reading.

Registration for this program is not required. Call the library at 330-626-4458 for further information. The library, located at 8990 Kirby Lane, is open Monday and Tuesday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday and Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For additional information on library programs and services, visit the Portage County District Library's website.
