Beginning readers are invited to the library to practice their new skills by reading to a dog and its handler. One-on-one reading sessions are held in a congenial environment to build confidence and to make reading fun. All canine participants are certified Ambassador Dogs. This program is available through a partnership with the Flagler Humane Society. Sessions are offered on a first-come-first-served basis from 4 to 5:30 p.m. every Wednesday. Caregivers must sign a permission form to allow children to participate.
This bimonthly after-school program is geared towards children who are at least 6 years old and like books and science. It provides a fun environment that introduces budding scholars to the scientific method through hands-on experiments. There is no better way for children to learn about the world around them, and the science behind their favorite stories. The program is limited to the first 24 children — sign up begins 30 minutes before the program starts. Science Matters is held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of February, April, June, August, October, and December.
*Please note that some of the classes listed below are also appropriate for children of other ages.
