Home Composting Program:  Join Carol Shirk from the Dodge County Master Gardener’s Association as she presents a Home Composting Program at the Brownsville Public Library on Tuesday, May 5, at 6:00 p.m. Composting is a gardening task that causes unnecessary angst. It is actually a simple process occurring every day in nature. With a few simple pointers, every gardener can have a successful compost pile. Carol Shirk has been gardening for over 50 years. She took the Master Gardener training first in 1996 in Wisconsin and again in 1998 in North Carolina and is currently serving as the Dodge County Master Gardener Association president.

This free program is open to the public and will be held in the lower level of the library which is accessible only by stairs. Enjoy refreshments at this educational program!

Paws to R.E.A.D. Program:  The Reading Education Assistance Dog (R.E.A.D.) Program for children is made possible through Healing Paws, Inc located in Fond du Lac. It is a non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of children and adults in special circumstances, through safe therapeutic interaction with dogs and cats. Studies have shown that reading to therapy animals helps children relax, increases their interest in reading, and improves their reading skills.

Our programs have been a huge success. The next program will be held on Tuesday, May 12 from 5:30-7:00 pm. Handlers and their dogs will work with individual children on a one-on-one basis for about fifteen minutes each. Children may choose library books to read or bring a book from home to read to the dog. PLEASE CALL OR STOP IN TO REGISTER!

Based upon participation, the program will tentatively continue to be held the second Tuesday of each month at the same time. This program is free and open to the public!
