Event Description

On Saturday, February 5, kids in grades one through six are invited to Dog Tale Times at all locations of Eugene Public Library.

Dog Tale Time helps young readers build skills and confidence by reading aloud to trained dogs. The dogs and their handlers come courtesy of PAAWS (People and Animals Who Serve), a local chapter of the Delta Society.

At the Bethel and Sheldon branches, catch Dog Tale Time between 10:30 and noon. Pre-register for short sessions reading with dogs by calling Bethel Branch at 541-682-5766 or Sheldon Branch at 541-682-5778.

Or drop in for sessions at the Downtown Library on Saturday, February 5, between 2:00 and 3:30 p.m.

Dog Tale Time will continue on future Saturdays at the Downtown Library only; pre-register at 541-682-8316 starting one week in advance.

For more information, contact Eugene Public Library at 541-682-8316 or www.eugene-or.gov/library.

Sponsored by the Eugene Public Library, Friends of the Library, and the Eugene Public Library Foundation.

These are female Rufous Hummingbirds. They are the most common hummingbird in Oregon. The male Rufous have much more red on their heads, back and belly with a red throat. I make my own nectar, the red dye is not good for them.
