Children's Programs

Clever Canines' Book Buddies Program

Clever Canines' Book Buddies Program offers monthly school year sessions on Mondays from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm.  Children in elementary school have the chance to read to one of the Clever Canines' friendly, certified therapy dogs.  

Participation is limited to 10 children per session; therefore registration is recommended to guarantee a 15 minute reading slot.  Walk-ins are welcome when time allows.  Registration begins two weeks prior to each reading session.


Story Time Sessions


Story time sessions take place in the Fall/Winter and the Winter/Spring.  Story hours are a wonderful way for children to gain important pre-reading skills, learn to socialize with other children, and to begin a lifelong love of books and reading. No registration is necessary. A parent or caregiver must attend with the child. Please call Chantal Emerson at 804-520-9384 with any questions.

  • Fall Family Storytime

     takes place each Tuesday and Wednesday at 11 am September 18 through December 5th. Join us for stories, music, and creative movement. Each story hour ends with a craft or STEM activity. Children build early literacy proficiency while making new friends and developing social skills. The suggested age is 3-5 year olds, but all ages are welcome.
  • Babies & Books Storytime

     for ages 6-24 months old, takes place on the first Wednesday of each month at 10:15 am through December 5th. Parents/caregivers interact one-on-one with their child, reading board books and acting out songs and finger plays, as the presenter leads the activities.
