Thank you all for such a great summer! While we won't be having any regular story times during the month of August (with the exception of Tail Waggin' Tutors), we'll be hard at work planning awesome new programs for the fall. Beginning September 4th, our programming schedule will be as follows:
Tour groups @ 11am –all ages (by appointment ONLY)
Saturdays: The “B” Club @ 11am –ages 5 and up
Tail Waggin’ Tutors @ 1pm –for beginning readers
Also, the first Thursday of every month there will be a Teen Advisory Group meeting at 5:00pm instead of the normal Teen Scene program. Applications for TAG are available at the Youth Services desk. For more information about any of our programs, please call Broadmoor Youth Services at (318) 219-1782.
Tail Waggin' Tutors is our newest prorgram in Youth Services for school-age readers to instill confidence and allow the child's reading skills to grow. Both Lulu and Simba are members of Therapy Dogs International and are loving animals. 'Children reading to dogs' has long been a popular program nation-wide.
Therapy Dogs International’s “Tail Waggin’ Tutors” program encourages children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener and furry friend to read to that won’t laugh at them if they make a mistake or stumble over a word, but rather lie next to them and enjoy the story being read to them. The children learn to associate reading with being with the dog, and begin to view reading in a positive way. Over time, the child’s reading ability and confidence can improve because they are practicing their skills, which will make them enjoy reading even more.
Come meet Lulu and Simba each Saturday afternoon at 1:00PM, beginning August 18th
