Read Dog

2nd Wednesday from 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Special time for your child to practice reading to a special Dog. The Reading (Therapy) Dog is a program designed to encourage reluctant readers to read. We are seeing children excited to read to this special dog as they enjoy petting and talking to the dog. Parents are finding the child may like to practice reading at home before coming thus encouraging the child to read more. The child reads alone with caregiver/parent, the Dog, and dog handler and time allotted is 15 minutes. To reserve a time, please call the Library or come and just wait for available time; usually not more than 15 minutes or less.
