Two Great Programs for Kids Offered in Machias


The Porter Memorial Library in Machias is starting up two favorite programs for the Fall.

Beau, Certified Pet Therapy Dog

“Dog Days at the Library” is a weekly event where kids get to interact with Beau, a certified pet therapy dog.  Beginning Saturday, Sept 23rd, Beau will spend the session listening to kids practice their reading skills.  Beau will visit with kids every 2nd & 4th Saturday of the month from 11:00am -12pm at the Library.  Kids of all ages are welcome.

Older children from grades 2 – 5 can also enjoy some time with Beau, as his mom Diane Parker hosts “Kids Story Hour: Exploring our world through reading and activities”. This is a guided reading hour with Diane and Beau on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month from 3p – 4p.

For more events and activities for kids check out Porter Memorial’s children’s page and their calendar of events.
