Book Buddies – Read to a Dog
WHEN: NEW DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED WHEN WE REOPEN
TIME: 3:30 - 4:30pm (Blocks of 15 minutes)
Does your child like reading and dogs? Sign up today to read to Lily, a trained therapy dog, at Fiske Library. Lily is a Bassett hound mix who came to live with the Winmill family 5 years ago from a rescue in Tennessee. She went to school like you, and became a “Therapy dog" and a" Reading Buddy" She is a happy gentle pup with velvet ears and polka dot spots. She loves the Library and loves to hear stories about animals (especially bunnies!) She has many jobs including visiting the elderly and cheering up college students during exam periods but her favorite time is spending time with children who read her stories. Lily can’t wait to meet you!
Beth Winmill has been a resident in Wrentham for 53 years and her children actually used the original library and went to elementary school here. She recently retired as a Professor of Nursing at CCRI and is enjoying her leisure time…especially with Lily in various venues.
Stop by the circulation desk or call the Library at (508) 384-5440 to register.
