Mentor Library is going to the dogs (and that’s OK)

You’ve probably heard of Paws to Read, our program that pairs young readers with therapy dogs.

You may have even thought, “That would be perfect for my kid.”

Well, now is the perfect time to find out.

We are holding our final Paws to Read sessions this year on Wednesday evening, Oct. 15, at our Mentor-on-the-Lake Branch, but we still have a few openings available as of today. (Today, in this instance, is Thursday, Oct.9.) But these openings won’t last until Oct. 15, so you should call Mentor Library if you’re interested.

You can register your child for Paws to Read by calling (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.

Paws to Read is for readers between the ages of six and 12 years old.

If your child can read independently but doesn’t like to do it in front of other people, you might try signing them up for Paws to Read. The program works well for dog lovers, but it’s also helped some kids who are scared of dogs get over their phobia.
