Read to Rosa Returns Monday, May 2
Perfect for kids who love both dogs and reading
Sign up today for this popular program for new and emerging readers, which takes place the first Monday of each month during the school year. Rosa is a gentle English Setter who, accompanied by her owner Marsha Barden, loves to sit on the floor and listen to stories. (Sometimes Rosa's sons, either Grover or Louie, come to the library instead.) Each child may sign up for a 20-minute time slot between 3:00 and 5:00. Give us a call, send an e-mail, or stop in to register.
Note: Due to the popularity of this program, spaces fill up quickly. We hope to add a second Monday afternoon so look for more information soon.
Our next meeting will be Monday, May 9, 5:15 pm
Interested in writing? Join the Madbury Library Writing Group! Whether you write memoir, poetry or fiction, this a wonderful opportunity to share your work and receive input from other group members. Newcomers are always welcome to join the group for a fun, low-key and rewarding experience! We meet the second Monday of every month, September through June, at 5:15 pm.
