A program that allows children to read aloud to a therapy dog (or cat, or bunny!) in order to improve reading and communication skills. Children read individually to trained therapy pets (and their handlers) in the library where they can feel comfortable and confident – and have fun! After all, a dog will not correct them or make them feel awkward if they stumble.
Join us at the library for a one on one read aloud to one of the furry therapy friends from PAWS for People.

Feb. 1st to May 3rd
