    Teen Read Week has passed for another year, but that doesn't mean we're done. Brandy (the Teen Librarian) has been visiting classes at Wilmington High School and Wilmington Middle School and talking up some great books. Browse the middle school list or the high school list and see what sounds good!

    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.
