January Activities at St. Michael Library: Reading's Gone to the Dogs

A special dog, named Taurus, will be on hand at the library later this week to listen to beginning readers. It's a unique experience.

Reading goes to the dogs, quite literally, with a special event at the St. Michael Library later this month. 

Taurus, a Reading Education Assistance Dog, will be at the St. Michael Public Library on from 10:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Jan. 18, to listen to kindergarteners and first grade students read.

Reading Education Assistance Dogs are specially trained to listen quietly as children read out loud. The program provides an anxiety-free environment in which children can develop confidence in their reading skills. Contact the library to register for a 15-minute reading session.

For additional information, please contact the St. Michael library at 763-497-1998.

Also this month, job-hunters take heart. 

The St. Michael Public Library is offering a Resume Review opportunity with Matt Rausch from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Jan. 15.

Rausch is a retired and experienced Minnesota WorkForceCenter representative who will offer resume review sessions to provide advice and consulting to adults who sign up for a 15-minute one-on-one session.

Bring your resume with you or be ready to put one together. Eight sessions are available and registration is required.
