Lincoln City Libraries and Healing Heart Therapy Dogs, a local therapy dog organization, are providing an opportunity for children ages 6 to 12 who have experienced reading difficulties or who just need to practice their reading. Therapy teams are partnered with children who polish their skills by reading aloud to a dog. Children read to dogs in 20-minute shifts, once a week for four weeks. This spring session will begin the week of Monday, March 23 through Saturday, May 2.
Pre-registration is required; see the contact information below to register.

If schools are closed due to bad weather, storytimes are canceled.
For children aged 18 to 36 months and their parents or caregivers. During Toddler Time, a librarian reads aloud and leads adult-child pairs in activities. Research indicates the importance of the adult-child bond in building early literacy. Toddler Time also supports early literacy by building vocabulary and sharing age-appropriate literature in an atmosphere of fun, engaging activity.
Lincoln City Libraries presents its popular preschool storytimes at all library locations. Preschool Storytime is a half-hour of books and activities for children ages three, four and five.
Storytimes for Families
The entire family is welcome to enjoy crafts and storytime from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., except where other times are noted.
