Dogs and Tales

6-7:30 p.m. | Puett Room
Beginning readers through grade 5

There will be no Dogs & Tales on Wednesday, October 31

Could your child use a helping paw with reading? Reading aloud to a dog creates a relaxed, non-judgmental environment to help children develop their reading skills and build confidence.

Registration required. Please call the Children's Desk at 503-718-2656 to sign up. 
Read aloud to the dog at the Tigard Library

Family Jam!
Rock the library!
Stop by the Children’s Reference Desk and ask to borrow one of our instrument kits to use when the Puett Room is available. You can explore the Family Band Kit with instruments for ages five and up, or the Baby Band Kit for your tiniest rock stars! Sponsored by Friends of the Tigard Public Library
