"Paws for Reading"
May 1@
May 18 @

Goldie, a Certified Therapy Dog, loves a good story but needs someone (children ages 6-10) to read it to her.  If interested in helping Goldie and practicing reading aloud, please sign up for a 15 minute reading session during one of these times or just drop in to meet Goldie and see if she is free to hear a story!  You may bring in your favorite book or choose one at the library.  

*Note:  Therapy Dogs International, Inc. is a volunteer group organized to provide qualified handlers and their Therapy Dogs for visitation in a variety of facilities and settings.  Their “Paws for Reading” program is designed to allow kids the chance to read to a non-judgmental listener in a stress-free environment.  Children find themselves relaxing and having fun while improving their  reading skills!
