Did you know that reading to a dog improves literacy skills, instills confidence, and boosts public speaking abilities? It does! It's also REALLY fun! Registered therapy dogs Clover, Zoe, and Turner return to the Denville Library on Saturday, June 1st from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. They can't wait to hear you read! Please register below. Woof!
Please come to the Library's Theatre on Saturday, April 27th, at 2:30 pm for our Saturday Afternoon Movie. This time, we will be showing Hotel Transylvania (rated PG). In this computer-animated movie, Dracula operates a fancy resort for monsters. When an ordinary young man visits the hotel, Dracula worries that his daughter Mavis will fall in love with him! This is a very funny, slightly spooky movie that is great for the whole family. Popcorn will be served! No registration required.
Reading aloud boosts confidence -- especially for shy or reluctant readers -- and improves reading skills for all children. The Denville Library is excited to host registered therapy dogs Clover, Randall, and Zoe on Saturday, May 4th from 11:00 am to Noon. Children in grades K-5 will find that Clover, Randall, and Zoe are patient, non-judgmental listeners. Reading to a dog is great practice for reading aloud in class at school. Have your child bring books from home or feel free to read one (or more!) of ours.
