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.  

Scout the Dog is ready for a story at:

Elmhurst Library, Every Saturday at 11am

Natasha the Dog is ready for a story at:

81st Avenue Library, First Wednesday of the month at 2pm

Rockridge Library, Second Wednesday of the month at 2pm

Montclair Library, Third Wednesday of the month at 1:30pm

This page is great! I am wondering if there are any Read to a Dog events at the Melrose branch? I teach 1st grade and this would be such a wonderful incentive for my kiddos!
