We are pleased to announce a new program with Faithful Paws designed to help reluctant readers gain confidence in their abilities. When it comes to unconditional acceptance and sincere enthusiasm, dogs are a breed apart, so what better listener for a child who may be struggling with reading. Registered therapy dog, Nooska, and her human, Shawn Stibbard, will visit Northwest Branch Library.

Henna Tattooing

The Henna Tattooing program at the Northwest Branch Library is designed for young adult’s ages 11-18, and Adults, to explore and encourage multiculturalism by introducing different cultural experiences and expressions. We will introduce traditional hand and body painting, an artistic custom practiced in many cultures around the world. Henna is an all-natural plant product made from henna tree leaves, which are ground into a powder. Mixed with water, red tea, dark coffee or red food coloring and lemon juice, it is then made into thick paste and applied to hands, feet arms or legs. This is done for a number of reasons: for good luck, for fashion or just for fun. Henna is not permanent, but instead stains the skin. Henna will wash and fade in one to three weeks. Permission slips are available in the library and those who do not have slips will not be allowed to engage in the henna application. May 20, 2015 @ 2:00 pm.
