A Special Guest for Story Time

Hexie, our lovable Paw Pals therapy dog, was our special guest for Baby Bookworms and Preschool Story Time on Tuesday. Hexie is an American Staffordshire Terrier and a certified therapy dog. Her owner, Mary Jo Anderson of Pearl, expressed that Hexie is certified to interact with children and adults in hospitals, nursing homes, school, libraries, and other organizations. She is very lovable, calm, and loves attention! Hexie and her playmate, Liesel, can be found every first Saturday of the month at the Pearl Library at 10:30 am for Paw Pals. Liesel is a German Shepard owned by Betty Hutchinson of Pearl; Liesel is also a certified therapy dog. K-6 kids are invited to attend Paw Pals and build their reading skills by reading to Hexie and Liesel who love stories!

Lego Lab @ the Library

Lego Lab @ the Forest Public Library is always popular with boys and girls alike. It's such a treat to see what these K-6ers can come up with in an hour. We are always looking for Lego donations and we got a special treat this week. A local cub scout troop donated Legos as part of their community service. So not only did they get join in the fun for the evening, they also contributed to future fun for other Lego fans. We look forward to seeing everyone again on April 5th for our next Lego Lab.
