READ to a Dog

Who let the dogs in? We are so excited to offer the opportunity for kids to improve their reading skills in a unique way – READ To A Dog!! Certified reading dogs will be available in the Library Community Room from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. every second Saturday of the month. Choose a book, sit back, relax, and read to the kind, compassionate, caring creature we know as D-O-G! Kids will become less anxious and more confident about reading, AND have a good time! For more information, stop by the Children’s Desk to pick up a flyer or call the Library and ask for the Children’s Librarian. (Dogs are fully trained and certified through either Pet Partners or Therapy Dogs International)
