May 1, 2018, 9:00 AM - May 31, 2018, 8:00 PM @ High Point Public Library- Lobby1
May 10, 2018, 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM @ High Point Public Library- Children's Storyroom
Our Paws to Read program offers all young readers the chance to practice their reading skills to one of our certified therapy dogs. You can call or stop by to register your child for a 20 minute reading session. We will hold the sessions in the library storyroom. Please arrive on time or a little early. We will have books your child can choose from or you can bring your own favorites. During the session, the child will be introduced to the dog and the dog owner will answer any questions the child might have. The intent of these sessions is to give the young reader one-on-one reading time with the dog. It works best if brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles wait outside the storyroom until the session is over. We will allow pictures to be taken after the session is completed. Your reader will receive an incentive reward for each 20 minute reading session (sticker, bookmark, etc.).
May 10, 2018, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ High Point Theatre
The High Point Public Library Foundation is pleased to announced that Elliot Engel will once again make a presentation for the community. His topic “A Light History of the English Language,” one of his most popular presentations, will be held Thursday, May 10 at 7 p.m. at the High Point Theatre, 220 E. Commerce Ave.
Dr. Engel traces the fascinating development of our English language from the Celts to the Anglo-Saxons to the invading French. Chaucer is given his proper place as the earliest named literary genius. Using anecdotes, analysis and large doses of humor, Professor Engel brings to life this most personal of topics which has always been as near as the tip of our tongue.
