Marlboro Library to host Therapy Dog reading program

Posted

Did you know therapy dogs are non-judgmental listeners that can help an emerging reader relax and read confidently? School age children (grades k-5) are welcome to drop in to The Library to read to therapy dogs, Sebastian and Fletcher, from Hudson Valley Paws for a Cause! Registration is not required, but RSVP online is preferred.

Due to the limited availability of this program, we cannot guarantee a set time slot for your child to read to a dog. Please come prepared to patiently wait a few minutes for your turn.

Questions? Contact Ms. Taylor at taylor@marlborolibrary.org or 236-7272 ext. 217.

Poetry reader’s club continues

Wish you had some more poetry in your life? Join Poetry Club! This group consists mainly of non-poetry experts who share an appreciation of literature, and would like to explore new poems. Attendees will have a whole month to read a selected poem before meeting to share their thoughts and/or ask questions.

Poetry club will meet the second Wednesday of the month in August, September and October.

The next meeting will be Wednesday, August 14 at 7:30 pm. We will discuss Sonnet 116: Let me not to the marriage of true minds, by William Shakespeare and Love is Not All (Sonnet XXX) by Edna St. Vincent Millay. Copies of these poems may be picked up at the Library’s circulation desk. Bring your suggestions for future selections!
