Therapy Dog Visit for Teens

Know what’s the best? Reading. Know what’s also the best? Snuggly dogs. But do you know what’s even better than either of those things? Reading to snuggly dogs. It’s the best of the best! Stop by on World Read Aloud Day to get a mood boost with some specially-trained therapy dogs and books. These dogs are specifically trained to be stress relief on four legs, and they love being read to!


Family Forts

For preschool-grade 5 & their families. Celebrate World Read Aloud Day with some cozy family fun. We’ll build some blanket forts in the Braman Room and then spend time in them reading together as a family. You’ll provide the blankets and we’ll provide the rest!
