    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.

    The library is sponsoring Food for Fines from October 9 until November 21. You may clear any fines on your account by bringing in nonperishable food items to help supply the Wilmington Food Pantry. In the spirit of Food for Fines, it is recommended that the value of the food items be close to the amount of fines on your card.
