MPL is offering a reading program, Tales That Wag, for young children to age 12 on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. until noon. One-on-one sessions give your child the opportunity to have the undivided attention of the dog and its handler. Participants can earn a new book of their own to keep after reading to a dog for four sessions.
Paws Hand Delivered is a local, nationally registered and approved therapy dog/handler group. They have developed a program in which your child will spend a period of 7 to 10 minutes reading to one of the dogs in the library.
There is no charge for the program, however, your child will need written permission to participate.
We hope to see you for a tail wagging good time!

We have a new reference database available. ReferenceUSA is a great source for searching businesses and individuals in the United States. With the U.S. Standard White Pages, you can search for individuals by name, address, or telephone number. The U.S. Businesses search lets you search by company, personal name, city, state, or telephone number. Customized searching allows you to find businesses by what they do or make, by location, even search for businesses in a certain area by how many employees or computers they have.
This is a great database if you’re looking for work, writing a business plan, researching sales leads, or just looking for a place to buy what you need. Find it on our Electronic Resources page.
