Reading to a dog is a low-pressure way for children to practice their reading skills, and fun besides! A parent or legal guardian must sign a permission form before children read with Eele. Stop by the desk in the children's room to complete the form and sign up for a turn with Eele.
September 14, 2017, 10:30 AM - 11:00 AM @ Ferndale Branch Library (Please enter at the side door for this program.)
Visit the Ferndale Library for a fun toddler story time. Story time is a great activity for young children. It helps them learn words and pronounce them, learn how to listen, absorb new facts and ideas, and develop imagination and creativity. Kids who listen to stories are better prepared for life and school. Story time at the library engages a child's fascination with stories and makes a connection to reading that can be a lifelong advantage. Most of all, it's fun!

Poet, publisher, and oral memoirist Michael Czarnecki will share photos, stories, poems and prose of his experiences along Route 20. All ages welcome. In the autumn of 1996 Michael traveled 20 days on America’s longest road and wrote a book about his adventures, 'Twenty Days on Route 20'. 15 years later, he once again traveled the length of US 20, this time in spring. He says, 'US 20 is the longest US highway. It connects the two coasts, crosses the Mississippi and Missouri rivers and takes you to Yellowstone National Park! Cities, small towns, rolling hills, eastern woodlands and farms, midwestern plains, wild western landscapes. What more could one want in a single route, a route that today is garnering much interest in its historic significance.'
