MONTHLY PROGRAMS 
LEGOS® @ the Library
First Saturday of every month
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Children can learn several skills when working with LEGO blocks, including planning, creativity, problem solving and having fun!  Plan on the first Saturday of every month where we dump thousands of LEGO blocks on the floor and let the kids build and play.

Read to Rover
Second Thursday of Every Month
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Studies show that children gain confidence when reading to dogs.  Whether your child is a pre-reader, just learning to read, or is a proficient reader, they will enjoy this fun program.  When readers get three punches on their punch card, they get a free book!  Plan on the second Thursday of every month, in partnership with Hutchinson Kennel Club Therapy Dogs.
