Visit the Tecumseh Public Library and find a world of books, online resources, program opportunities and much more offered seven days a week.

The library welcomes readers of all ages to experience their hometown library. Among the highlights coming up in October are:

Toddler Story Time, taking place at 11 a.m. on each Thursday of the month, brings a mix of stories, songs, finger plays and crafts as children and their caregivers experience pre-literacy skills and an introduction to the library.

Children who are a little older and starting to read are invited on Mondays beginning at 4 p.m., when a group of friendly therapy dogs come to the library to listen to the children read in a non-judgmental atmosphere. Call the library at 598-5955 to schedule a time for your child to read to a dog.

It’s October, so pumpkins are everywhere. And the library presents a pair of craft activities for ages 18 and up – Burlap Pumpkins, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8; and Pumpkin Goodies, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15. Click the links for more information and to sign up for the programs.

The library is of course first and foremost a place for reading, through books, magazines and the access to a variety of online databases for learning, genealogy research, career assistance and much more.

Library card holders get access not just to what’s available inside the walls of the library, but also the more than 700,000 books and downloadable materials available through the Pioneer Library System.
