In our March After School Art class, we learned about some of the amazing contributions by African-American artists, poets, writers, and musicians during the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s to mid-1930s. We specifically focused on the abstract portraits of artist Beauford Delaney. As always, our young artists produced fantastic works of art. We are so proud of you all!

It was a super chilly Saturday morning, but our therapy dogs made us all smile at Read to a Dog in March. Thank you to all our friends — old and new! — who read with us, and huge thanks to Turner, Janie the Therapy Dog, Zoe, Kaelin, and Clover for being such good listeners.

Our therapy dog Rusty has visited us for our monthly Read to a Dog program for the past three years. All our kids love Rusty, and all our staff members love Rusty, and pretty much everyone loves Rusty! Rusty has retired from her therapy work and will now get to be a full-time regular dog. She is looking forward to playing in the mud as much as she can!
You can check out some photos from Rusty’s library visits by clicking here or on the picture below.
We will be putting out coloring pages in the children’s library if any of our young friends would like to stop by and make a thank you card for Rusty. Thank you, Rusty, for the many hours you have spent listening to us read and for your constant smiles and joy. And many thanks to Rusty’s parents, Joe and Arlene McCaig, for their tireless support of our Read to a Dog program.
Please meet our staff. We are always happy to help our patrons!
