Elementary & Middle School Programs
When it comes to ages 7-12, we have some outstanding Fall programs at the Spring Green Community Library! In fact, there's a fresh and exciting program to participate in almost every week. We really value offering kids an opportunity to cultivate their own interests and learning, so that they may become curators of their own knowledge. It is for this reason that we're trying to choose programs that align with things like art, science, and technology - things we know kids are passionate about. We do our best to be as forward thinking as possible! Certain programs require registration, which typically opens up 2-3 weeks before said program date - so be sure to check back regularly, and visit our facebook page.

‣ "Read With Me": Develop reading skills with a friendly dog!
• Please contact Carrie at (608) 588-2276 with any questions!
The Spring Green Community Library is proud to offer the Read With Me literacy program in collaboration with Pet Partners. Read With Me utilizes registered therapy animals that have been trained and tested for health, safety, and appropriate temperament to help children improve reading and communication skills. Read With Me dogs and their owner/handlers are volunteers who work as a team, going to schools, libraries and more as reading companions for children. Read With Me dogs are attentive listeners who transform an environment by creating a relaxed, no-pressure atmosphere where a child’s anxieties are replaced by comfort and excitement. The owner/handler provides support while the child gets supervised reading practice to help build vocabulary, increase understanding of the materials and gain fluency as a reader. Read With Me is a fantastic program that yields fantastic results!
