We let the dogs out.
In fact, we do it on the third Wednesday of every month.
That’s when a pack of adorable therapy dogs converge at our library for Paws to Read.
Paws to Read pairs young readers (between the ages of six and 12 years old) with the dogs, who listen to the kids as they read.
The dogs make an ideal audience—supportive and adorable—and all they ask for in return is the occasional belly rub. The program helps build the child’s confidence and makes reading fun for them.
Paws to Read will be on hiatus during November and December, but it will be back in January.
