Kids in grades 1-5 are invited to sign up for a 15-minute reading slot. What a fun (and furry) way to improve reading skills! The program will be held on the third Saturday of the month from 10:30 a.m.-noon in Little Chute, and registration is now open for September 19, October 17, and November 21. Stop by either location or call 788-7825 to register. You may sign up for more than one month at a time. Dogs love a good story, so be sure to reserve your “Spot” soon!
