Read to a Dog

Read to a Dog

Meet the pooches who inspire children to read! The Read to a Dog program encourages children to practice their reading aloud skills to a furry friend, building reading confidence.

Bring a favorite book (or find one at the library!) and read aloud to a doggo.

Real Life Library

Real Life Library

Inspired by the Human Library Project, Real Life Library is a unique storytelling and listening event designed to provide the opportunity for community members to listen to and learn from other people’s stories.

Volunteers will act as live “books” that attendees can “read,” taking in each person’s 20-minute real, personal stories. 

Each of the “books” will be recorded and used to build a digital repository of stories and experiences that can be shared, taught, and passed on from generation to generation. Every Real Life Library event ultimately creates a digital volume of books, or human perspectives that can help educate others on social issues and humanize history.
