Reading MENtors: Saturday Story Time Series

Join us for our Saturday morning story time series, Reading MENtors! This reading initiative encourages men from our local community to celebrate that men love to read. We’re inviting men with different professions from all over Buncombe County to share the joy of reading with young patrons at the Enka-Candler Library. Data shows that having active male role models in children’s lives can break down stereotypical gender biases and lead to higher gender equality and empowerment. This program is open to children of all ages and gender identities. We believe that positive literacy role models are for everyone! Story time will be every other Saturday @10:30 AM, please join us for a story time followed by fun activities! August 17: Pizza Party! · Jack Kirakossian, personal chef and food educator with Cook With K  If you know of someone in our community who would be a great Reading MENtor, let us know!

We’re inviting men with different professions from all over Buncombe County to share the joy of reading with young patrons at the Enka-Candler Library. Data shows that having active male role models in children’s lives can break down stereotypical gender biases and lead to higher gender equality and empowerment. This program is open to children of all ages and gender identities. We believe that positive literacy role models are for everyone! Story time will be every other Saturday @10:30 AM, please join us for a story time followed by fun activities! August 31: Stay Cool · JGreg Garrison, Owner of The Hop Handcrafted Ice Cream If you know of someone in our community who would be a great Reading MENtor, let us know!

Read to Puptart, the library robot dog!

Puptart is a tail wagging robot dog who sits and stays, pants when listening, and responds to someone talking to and petting it. It will not jump up or run away, plus it's fur free, so no sneezes and runny noses coming your way!

Sign up at the front desk, pick a book and practice reading for up to 15 minutes. Location: Enka-Candler Library - 1404 Sandhill Rd. - Candler. Phone: (828) 250-4758.
