Library introduces new programs for kids

Paws 4 Stories: Free Reading Support for Kids helps children read with the help of local therapy dog, Timba.

The Vancouver Island Regional Library is offering two new programs beginning in January.

Paws 4 Stories: Free Reading Support for Kids helps children read with the help of local therapy dog, Timba.

Through the St. John Ambulance Paws 4 Stories program, the library offers free, 15-minute readings sessions.

German-speaking caregivers are invited to join Sooke’s Playgroup Kinderspielgruppe on Saturdays between 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Sooke Library Branch. German songs, rhymes and reading short stories will be shared.
