PAWS to Read with Bark Therapy Dogs – 1:30pm
New and practicing readers read to Natasha the dog. Reading to dogs can help increase kids’ reading confidence, skill and enjoyment. Note: Natasha will be on vacation from May 25 through June 15. She will be back at the Montclair branch every Wednesday starting June 22.

Beautiful Mess – 3:00-4:30pm
What are we making? Whatever you want — and it’s going to be beautiful. And messy. This once-a-month afterschool art program allows kids to focus more on the process than the product, whether we’re using clay, watercolors, pencils or odds and ends. We might not know where this art project is going, but we’ll have lots of fun getting there. For children of all ages; children 5 and under should be accompanied by a parent or caregiver.
