    Our next session of Sensory and Movement Storytime for Kids with Special Needs (for children with physical, developmental, medical, emotional, and/or learning-based special needs) will be held on Saturday, August 2nd at 10:00 am.

    If your child needs some time to become acclimated to our setting, please feel free to come at 9:45 am.

    This program precedes our Read to a Dog program at 11:00 am, in which certified therapy dogs come to the library. Two of our therapy dogs will be available around 10:40 am specifically for the Sensory and Movement Storytime, so as to accommodate children who may be more comfortable in a smaller group. All children are welcome to stay for the 11:00 am session.

    Please register below. We can't wait to see you!


    *** REGISTRATION DETAILS ***

    Denville residents AND residents of all neighboring communities may begin signing up on Tuesday, July 22nd. Thank you!

    Our certified therapy dogs are back for another visit! Meet Turner, Rusty, Zoe, Janie, and Marquis (Clover is on vacation!) at Read to a Dog on Saturday, August 2nd from 11:00 am to Noon. This program is open to all ages and abilities, both readers and pre-readers. 

    Reading aloud to non-judgmental listeners (like dogs!) boosts confidence and improves reading and recitation skills. Moreover, reading together helps to reinforce letter recognition and vocabulary, and it creates a stronger bond with books. It's also a lot of fun! Don't believe us? Check out these great photos from our July session. 

    Ready to sign up? Cool! Please register below. Woof!
