chapters of some amazing chapter books each week. Reading aloud is known to:  Expand your vocabulary, Improve comprehension, Strengthen the imagination, Increase your attention span and create a lifelong love of reading. We hope you can join us!

Tutoring

Free Math and English Language Arts tutoring is provided during the school year through the local non-profit organization, Restoring the Breach. Tutors are available on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 5:00 -6:30pm. Visit www.restoringthebreach.org or email RestoringTheBreach@gmail.com to register.

Book Bundles:

Request a book bundle and we will select a variety of books for you to read, check them out to your library card and then let you know when they are ready to pick up. This is a great way to learn about something new, and read something you’ve never read before. Be sure to give us a few suggestions on what you or your child’s interests are. Here is the form to request a book bundle.
A library card in good standing is required. If you don’t have an active card we can help with that too. We look forward to hearing from you. You can apply for a library card here.
