Due to the popularity of our Wags & Tales and Purrs & Tales Programs, we have created a new reading program called “Book Pals.”
Basic Program Information
Children’s Ages: 6-15 years
Allowed Reading Hours:
Monday and Wednesday: 3:00pm-6:00pm
Saturday and Sunday: 11:00am-1:00pm
In order to participate: Child must be registered, supervised each visit, and child and an adult must attend orientation.
Cost: $10 per child/session
What to bring: We kindly request that each child bring a mat, blanket, or pillow to sit on for their own comfort and cleanliness. But, if you don’t want to dirty up your human blankets, you can purchase your own Official Book Pals Reading Blanket for $25.00 (optional). Children MUST bring Book Pals badge to each visit so that staff can identify if they are allowed to be participating.
52” x 47” roll up blanket, made of polyester fleece and water resistant PVC backing.
Sessions throughout the year: There will be four (4) three-month sessions.
