Congrats Liz, and thank you for donating these "best of the best" materials to our young adult collection!

SUSPENDED - Reading Therapy Dog Visits
Mondays 11 - 12 pm
Thursdays 4 - 5 pm
The Pinedale Library
Sign up for a 15 minute session today

Reading therapy dogs can help children read better because for them it can be easier to practice reading aloud with a dog rather than in front of classmates or parents — it helps them gain confidence without fear or embarrassment of making mistakes. We've invited Peggy Weber and her certified reading therapy dog Rosie to visit the library and sit quietly while children read aloud to her. Rosie has been certified as a reading therapy dog through Teton County Pet Partners, the local chapter of the national organization Pet Partners

Peggy and Rosie will be available on Mondays from 11 am until noon and on Thursdays from 4 pm until 5 pm. Sign up your child to read with Rosie for one 15 minute session. Please call the library at (307) 367-4114 or stop in to the Children's Room to reserve a time slot.

Sublette BOCES - Pinedale and the Sublette County Library Foundation have enriched our weekly Baby and Me Storytime with generous grant funding. Twenty sets of beloved board books will now be used by us during Baby and Me to encourage caregivers to enjoy books with their babies and to give pointers on reading to children.

Ready4K: Text messages to boost your child's learning

Parents of preschoolers, you can now sign up for a new, free texting service that delivers fun facts and easy tips to your phone. Called Ready4K, the texting service shows parents how to boost children’s learning and get them ready for kindergarten. In the last year, the University of Wyoming's Literacy Research Center and Clinic teamed up with Stanford University to develop and research Ready4K to make this service available in Wyoming. Research shows that receiving these helpful texts can significantly increase children’s learning. Parents and caregivers with children, ages 3 to 5, are invited to sign up for the free service, which provides three texts per week. The service is available in English and Spanish.
