Faithful Paws

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.

Wait and Read

Running errands always means you'll be waiting in line somewhere. Standing in line easily becomes a chore itself, but if you have a book handy, it’s no longer something to be endured. Instead, waiting becomes a time to enjoy a good book, if only for a few minutes. 

I like to bring books that are easy to jump in and out of when I have to wait. My favorite “waiting books” are trivia and fact books because you can stop on any page and begin reading.

 Do you bring a book with you when you know you’ll be waiting in long lines?  What books do you enjoy reading as you wait?

 

Here are some titles I've carried with me during quick trips:
