Two special bears will be visiting the library this holiday season! Snowflake and Jingle Bell will be spending time in Children’s Services. They plan on having a few adventures while they are here and we’re sure our security camera will see what they are doing!
December 1st to December 24th:
• Stop by the Children’s desk daily to view the picture of what the bears did the night before
• Use the picture to find the Snowflake and Jingle Bell located somewhere in the Children’s area
• Tell the Librarian where you found the Snowflake and Jingle Bell to earn an entry into a drawing for a chance to win a prize!
• You may enter daily from December 2nd to December 24th

Each reading child will sign up for one 15 minute time with a dog of their choice. Sign up happens on the day of the program. READ to a Dog program is a chance for children to read to a dog one on one. Sometimes, children may have a difficult time reading, and reading to a dog can bring a feeling of non-judgment, which makes reading a more relaxing and fun experience. With bringing the Intermountain Therapy dogs here, it creates that relaxed feeling in a safe and comfortable environment. READ to a Dog is an affiliate program of Reading Education Assistance Dogs® of Intermountain Therapy Animals of Salt Lake City, Utah. We thankfully recognize the Otto and Yvonne Mansfield Endowment at St. Vincent Healthcare Foundation for providing the funding for this program. The Mansfields had a great love of animals and would be very pleased to support READ. We would also like to thank the Billings Public Library Foundation for coordinating the efforts of making this gift possible.
