Children can read to therapy dogs

PAWS for Reading! On Monday, March 3, and Monday, March 17, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., read to a therapy dog at the library. Kids can read aloud to a therapy dog in order to improve reading and communication skills. Children read individually to trained therapy pets (and their handlers) at the library where they can feel comfortable and confident — and have fun. Kids will also get prizes along the way for each time they read to our therapy dogs. Registration required. Please call the library or sign up at the Children’s Desk at the Main Branch.
