Therapy Pet Reading Program

The Elm Grove Library sponsors a therapy pet program for students in grades 1-5 who would like extra practice reading aloud. Students may sign up for one 25-minute session per month with one of three animals. Dexter is a Russian Blue/Siamese cat; Clover is a Springer Spaniel; and Enzo is a Golden Retriever. All are experienced and certified therapy animals so they are calm and patient. Sign up in the library or by phone, 262-782-6717.

Need an introduction to the library?

Students who would like to learn how to make the best use of library resources can schedule a class at a convenient time. For grades 1-3, there is a 30-minute class that includes a library tour and an explanation of available materials and how to find them. For older students, there is an additional 30-minute class to introduce them to the research databases provided by the library. Recommended especially for home school students. Classes will be scheduled on an as-needed basis, so contact Sue Daniels, Youth Services Librarian, for more information.
