Love owls? Join us for a special program today. First, Cunningham Falls State Park will bring some real, live owls to the library and will share information about them--where they live, what they do, what they eat, and more. Next, a local artist will help teach you how to draw an owl using a live model. Space is limited, so register today!

Improve your reading skills and make a new friend by reading aloud to a therapy dog! The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) program improves children's reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to a dog. But not just any dog. R.E.A.D. dogs are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team, going to schools, libraries and many other settings as reading companions for children. Allergy alert: the dogs are live animals.
