Double the dogs for Paws to Read

Miss Marlee and other trained therapy dogs await your young reader at Paws to Read.

Miss Marlee and other trained therapy dogs await your young reader at Paws to Read.

To our young readers/dog lovers, we have two rounds of Paws to Read coming up.

That’s right! We’re doubling up the pup!

First, we have a pair of sessions on Wednesday, April 17, at our Main Branch. The first begins at 6:30 p.m., the second at 7 p.m.

The pups from our Paws to Read program will visit our Headlands Branch on Saturday, May 4. There will be two sessions: one beginning at 1:30 p.m., another at 2 p.m.

Paws to Read pairs young readers (between the ages of six and 12 years old) with adorable and well-trained therapy 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.

If your child loves dogs but is shy about reading, then they (and you) will love our Paws to Read.

The program is popular and fills up quickly, so you’ll need to sign up beforehand. You can register your child to participate online or call the Headlands Branch at 440-257-2000.
