The Reading Dogs will be back on Saturday, Nov. 23 from 11 a.m. to noon. Kids in Grades 1-5 who need to practice reading aloud are invited to meet and read to some lovable therapy dogs who are great listeners. Each child will have the opportunity to read at least one book to a canine volunteer. Participants can bring a favorite book or choose from the shelf. Registration is required.
There will be Mad Science on Saturday, Nov. 23 for Grades K-5 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Students investigate asteroid impacts and meteors, learn to differentiate the lights of airplanes from those of satellites, and explore the composition and nature of comets. Registration is required and will open two weeks prior to the event. (Use a zero, not a K, to register a kindergarten child.) This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
