PA Day Story Walks

Get outside and enjoy some fresh air while also reading a good book!  Story Walks are new to the Thorold Public Library and we will be featuring them all summer long as inspiration to both get active and keep reading.  Both of our PA Day Story Walks will be held on the TPL lawn nearest our parking lot. Drop in throughout the day and read at your own pace.  No registration required.

Bird wakes up grumpy. Too grumpy to eat, play-or even fly. So he walks. Somewhere along the way Bird realizes that his friends are walking with him, but his mood is gone!

Therapy Tails

Therapy Tails visit the Thorold Public Library on the first Saturday of every month from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. in the children’s reading circle.  Animal reading buddies foster basic social skills and confidence in young readers. The unconditional support of a canine companion allows for a safe and nonjudgmental environment in which children get excited about learning and grow their love of reading.  There is no cost to participate in this program.
