The Kids vs. Teens Tournament is fun way for you to show your support for the library. Your favorite characters from Juvenile and YA literature will be battling tournament style with different match ups every week.
Votes are cast by placing money into the bottles representing the characters of your choice. The characters with the least amount of money are eliminated every Saturday until we declare a winner.
All proceeds go to the library.
LEGO® Junior Maker Club
LEGO® Junior Maker Club! Make, tinker, build, and explore with LEGO®. The Junior Maker club encourages children and families to take a hands-on, minds-on approach to “making” with the use of LEGO® bricks while tying in a love for reading.
No registration is required. This is a child/parent event so everyone should bring their imaginations and be ready to build! Meets every Thursday from 6:30-7:30 pm.
Made possible by a donation to the library by LEGO® Systems, Inc. and the Association for Library Services to Children.

Caring Hearts Pet Therapy – Tales with T.A.I.L.S.
Caring Hearts Pet Therapy program seeks to improve children’s reading and communication skills with the assistance of trained therapy animal teams. The children are encouraged to read, engage, and connect with the pet.
Bring your favorite book or two or choose one here at the library to share with one of our animal friends. Children will have the opportunity to read individually or in small groups with each of the animals at the session depending on the number of children registered and pets available. Animals are attentive listeners and their presence increases a child’s comfort in reading aloud.
Recommended for ages K-5th grade. No registration is required. Caring Hearts Meets Tuesdays at 6 pm.
All team members have completed volunteer training, practice sessions, and have current clearances.
