Anubis loves to come to the library and listen to people read. So if your child would like to read to her give us a call at 574-896-2841 and we can schedule an appointment between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Tuesdays or Thursdays or on a convenient Saturday. As part of the READ program we will keep track of each twenty minute session with Anubis. After ten sessions the child can choose something from the goodie drawer; and after twenty sessions they get a special gift.
