Family Fun Events

                                Lego Club   

                                

Join the Lego Club, we provide the Lego’s, you provide the creativity.  This club is an open meeting for all who enjoy building with Lego’s.  It is a free form activity where you can let your imagination run wild.  If you bring a child under the age of 7, we ask that a parent or guardian remain the room during the program for safety reasons.  After the meeting, the Lego creations will be put on display throughout the library until the next meeting.  The Lego Club meets every other Saturday in the Children's Room at 11:00 am.  Please contact the library for more information at (610) 932-9625. 

Mother/Daughter Book Club

The Mother/Daughter Book Club offers girls ages 8-12 and a special lady in their life the opportunity to share some of their favorite titles.  Reading and discussing a shared book is a great way to take some time out of our busy schedules and connect with one another.  This group affords all members the opportunity to voice opinions, thoughts and insights.   Meetings will take place the first Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm.  Please contact the library for more information at (610) 932-9625.

Dog Day Afternoons @ Your Library

(click here) For "Dog Day" Information Flyer

Kids who stop in on special Saturdays will enjoy the rewards of improved reading skills and very special companionship with dogs like our registered therapy specialist “Libby.”

Our Library’s Libby is a graduate of the R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dogs) program, a national organization sponsored by Intermountain Therapy Animals based in Salt Lake City, Utah.   In the decade since Reading Education Assistance Dogs first walked into the Salt Lake City library, in November of 1999, thousands of children have awakened to the joys of reading and books, and laid the foundation for a lifetime of discovery and learning, through the simple but profound experience of reading to a dog.

Research with therapy animals indicates that children are often more willing to interact with an animal than another person.  They focus better on an activity or discussion when an animal is present, and refer back to the sessions many times in later conversations.  Further, during such interaction they are inclined to forget about their limitations.  There are also psychological benefits to interacting with animals, including increased relaxation and lower blood pressure.  We have seen that children find reading to an animal less intimidating, a special time for them that is helpful and fun and which transforms the formerly dreaded reading experience into a positive environment in which learning is facilitated. 

Oxford Public Library will host R.E.A.D. therapy afternoons every Saturday beginning September 11th. This promises to be another wonderful no fee social and educational program at your library. Please contact Nancy or Linda at 610.932.9625 for more information.
