Simon Says, “Read”
Why is reading to a dog educational and fun? Because Simon is soft, furry and warm and he loves the attention you give him when you practice your reading out-loud skills! Reading is in the Children’s Library Room and is one-on-one with Ms. Gwen and Simon present. Parents and others must wait outside for their reader. Waiting list only, begins in October. See the circulation desk to sign up!
Stay tuned for our next session!

Story Time
Story time with Samantha on Thursdays 10 am (ages preschool and babies welcome) year round.


1000 Books before Kindergarten
You may have noticed the Solar System on the walls of the Children’s Room. What is it for you ask? It’s our new 1000 Books before Kindergarten chart! Let your kids climb aboard a rocket ship with their name on it and watch them shoot through space all the way to Pluto!

Parents of children 0-5 sign up for the program and Smyth Library provides the parents with reading logs to track how many books they and others read to their children. When the families have reached 1,000 books before the child reaches kindergarten, they have successfully completed the program. Record keepsake books available now!
