Dogs in the Library? Well, sure, when they're working!
Young readers can read aloud to a certified therapy dog who loves listening to stories! Reading to dogs can help increase children's reading confidence, skill, and enjoyment.
Read to a Dog events are hosted at the following locations/times. Please call in advance of your planned day to make sure the dog is expected. Dogs take vacations too sometimes.
