The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) literacy program uses therapy animals to improve children's reading and communication skills. Join the R.E.A.D. team at the Waldo Branch on June 11 and July 9 as children read the pooches some prose. Children may sign up for a 10-minute slot each Saturday. Parents must sign a release form before children will be allowed to read with the dog.

The entire family can enjoy a celebratory afternoon of special, Shakespeare-centric activities. Learn the basics of stage combat. Make a trebuchet (a catapault) suitable for launching pom-poms or ping pong balls at a Shakespearean target. Or do some Mad Libbing. First Folio Family Fun also features poetry readings, soliloquies, short scene enactments, and Shakespeare on the screen in the Stanley H. Durwood Film Vault.
