Paws to Read: Good dogs, good books, even better times

The Mentor Public Library is going to be closed Sunday and Monday in commemoration of Memorial Day. (All of our digital services are still available though.)

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Would you forgive us if we shared photos of cute kids reading to cute dogs.

These photos are from our monthly Paws to Read program.

It pairs young readers (between the ages of six and 12 years old) with therapy dogs, who listen to the children as they read.

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. (Especially if your son or daughter is also a dog lover.)

The next session is slated for June 18 at our Main Branch and registration for it begins on June 14.

Registration fills up quickly, so contact the children’s department at Mentor Public Library soon if you think you child could benefit from Paws to Read.

There is often a waiting list for the program once registration begins.
