Our New Friends!

Home Sweet Home!
 I had fun hunting for caterpillar eggs this weekend and I brought some to the library! We now have 5 caterpillars and one more egg that will hatch any day now. Stop by the library over the next few weeks to see how they change and grow. We will watch them go from an egg to a chrysalis to a beautiful Monarch butterfly!

This little guy just hatched this morning!

Here are some activities you can do at home with your little ones to teach them about butterflies, brought to you by PBS Kids!
This one had already hatched when I
found him and my how he's grown!

Paws to Read @ Brandon Public Library

A dog in the library! Can it be? Yes! Clancy is a big, lovable, sweet and cuddly golden retriever who loves to make new friends, be petted and hear stories! He would love to meet you Saturday, April 28th! He'll be here from 10:00-12:00, you can come and go, so please stop by!

Paws to Read is a program that is ideal for new and/or struggling readers. The idea is that having an animal to read to is soothing to a struggling reader and eases the anxiety associated with reading aloud. Your child may read to Clancy(he's a great listener!) or simply pet him while they both enjoy a story read by Clancy's mom, Mrs. Wylyn. Clancy is a therapy dog registered with Delta Society.
