    • Calendar: Scarborough Public Library Youth Services

    • Many of you know Gracie—a special therapy dog who has visited us many times with her owner, Pat Touri. She will be joined by Emmie and her owner Mindy Beller to offer children who are reluctant readers with a powerful way to improve their reading skills: reading to the dogs in a private, cozy nook we’ll be creating just for them.
