Big Read Book Discussion - 'The Things They Carried'

Monday, June 8, 2015 - 6:30pm to 7:45pm
Age Group: 
The 'Off the Shelf Book Club' is participating in The Big Read 2015 and will be discussing 'The Things They Carried' (1990), a book considered one of the best about the Vietnam War. Far from a combat story of pride and glory, it is a compassionate tale of the American soldier, brimming with raw honesty and thoughtful reflection. Anyone is welcome to join this book club hosted by the Friends of the Thurmont Regional Library. Call Ann Miller at 898-9033 for further information.

Join us for a special day celebrating Man's Best Friend! Read with a special therapy dog (from the Wags for Hope organization), meet a local vet and learn some training tips from the Bark Busters. Don't forget to stop by the library the week before to vote for the "cutest dog in Thurmont".

R.E.A.D. ® with Wags for Hope

Saturday, August 22, 2015 - 11:00am to 12:00pm
Improve your reading skills and make a new friend by reading aloud to a specially trained "listening" animal! The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) program works to improve children's reading and communication skills by providing registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handler (as a team)to meet with and listen to children read.

*Allergy Alert! The dogs and cats are live animals.*

WAGS for Hope comes to the Thurmont Library on the 4th Saturday of every month at 11am.
