Tail Waggin’ Tutors (TWT)  


Here at Lewiston Public Library, an ongoing program for both the school year, and during Summer Reading, is our Tail Waggin’ Tutors program, where children are welcome to come in and read to certified therapy dogs.  These dogs, and their owners, volunteer their time to come to the library, where young readers can sign up for appointments with specific dogs, to come in and practice their reading.  Once registered for the program, there is a reading schedule kept next to the Catalog Computer in the Children’s Room, with all the dates, dogs, and times that readers can sign up for.  Since this is a “by appointment” program, we do ask that if a reader is unable to make their appointment, to please let us know so that we can offer the time slot to someone else.

To register for the program, please print, read, fill out, and bring in a TWT Contract: Tail Waggin Tutor Contract

Sensory Story Time   sensory-storytime

An inclusive program developed for children that are on the Autistic Spectrum or differently abled, and presented at a preschool/kindergarten level on development. Everyone is welcome at each of our story times but we began this story time because some may find greater enjoyment in its modified environment of a closed room, where lighting and music are lower, movement and conversation are encouraged, and there are multiple ways to engage through the senses. Registration is required. There is a 10 child limit. For further information please contact Ann Siejka.
