Let's Read Library Hours
Mary Jane Miller was an author of children’s books. She loved children and believed in the power of reading. When she passed away her family dedicated the “Let’s Read” library in Mary Jane’s memory as their way to say thank you to the staff of St. Patrick’s for the loving care Mary Jane received during her stay with us.
The purpose of Let’s Read is to place books in the hands of children to encourage reading. The Let's Read children's library is open twice a month for our staff and resident families to choose books for the children in their lives at no cost. The books are most appropriate for preschool through junior high school reading levels.These books do not need to be returned, however, the Miller Family’s only request is to continue Mary Jane’s legacy by sharing these books and the love of reading.
The library is open on the following dates from 11:00 a.m. - noon and 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.:
|July 19th||August 2nd, 16th and 30th||September 13th and 27th|
Our receptionist will be able to direct you to the library. There will be someone in the library to assist you and to answer any questions you may have.
