We are very excited that Mackenzie the listening Scottie will be coming to the library monthly to listen to children read. Mackenzie will be at the library on October 29, November 26 and December 17 between 5 and 6 pm. Mackenzie is a great listener who loves to have kids of all ages read to him. Reading out loud to dogs is great way for kids to improve their reading skills. It helps kids build confidence to read to a nonjudgmental listener like Mackenzie. Mackenzie has been certified as a therapy dog by the Pets & People Foundation. Call the Children’s Department to sign up for a 15 minute session between 5 and 6 pm.

In David Levithan's New York Times bestselling novel, A is a teenager that wakes up in a different body every day, and it has been this way for as long as he can remember. A has long since learned not to try and alter the person’s life he’s inhabiting for the day, but everything changes when he wakes up in the body of a boy named Justin, boyfriend to a girl named Rhiannon. Every Day is about the relationship between A and Rhiannon and what they are both willing to do to be with one another. The book asks the question, Can you love someone only for their soul, without keeping in mind their gender or appearance?
