Paws to Read
Learning to read, especially out loud, can be scary. A friendly face, particularly one with a wagging tail, can help ease reading jitters and build confidence. Our Paws to Read pups will listen calmly and quietly, as children in grades K-5 practice their reading skills.
Paws to Read drop-in sessions are available Monday, Jan. 16, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.; Monday, Jan. 30, from 4-5:30 p.m.; and Friday, Feb. 24, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Registration is not required. Each child will have a chance to read a book of their choice. Bring a favorite or pick one.
The library has a limited number of early literacy kits for families with children up to age 5. These kits include special story time goodies like a book, egg shaker, scarf, bubbles, snack containers and more and are co-sponsored by the Friends of Bethlehem Public Library.
Enjoy some fun-filled learning time when you pair these kits with our Storytime Online collection here: www.bethlehempubliclibrary.org/storytime-online-activities.
Storytime kits are available to families in the Bethlehem Central School District. Sign up at bethlehempubliclibrary.org/take-home-activity-kits.
