BLUE HILL, Maine — October is the time when some popular childrenâ€™s programs start up again at the Blue Hill Public Library. The weekly Chess Club resumes from 3 to 3:45 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7, and is for children ages 7 and up and for all levels of skill. Snacks and chess sets are provided.
â€śReading With the Big Kidsâ€ť resumes its weekly schedule on Monday, Oct. 17. This program features teen (or nearly teen) volunteers who read to young children on Monday afternoons, from 3 to 5 p.m. Parents will then be free to browse the library, use a computer or chat with a friend, knowing that their children are having fun. No sign up is necessary; families may just drop in. Children can choose books from the collection or bring favorites to share. Interested volunteers, please call Pat!
The â€śReader Dogâ€ť program will be back on Tuesdays, starting Oct. 4 at 3:30 p.m. Bri and her sister Gracie are both registered therapy dogs who enjoy listening to children read. The children read in a relaxed and nonjudgmental environment so that they may gain self-confidence. This is not a drop-in programâ€”children may sign up for 20 minute slots ahead of time with Pat. For more information on any of these programs, call Pat at 374-5515.
