Doggy Tales at the Library

Grades K - 4

Does your child struggle with reading or shy away from reading aloud? Reading aloud to specially trained therapy dogs has been proven to help children feel less subconscious and improve skills. The Library is excited to offer 15-minute time slots for your child to read aloud to a specially trained "listening dog." Registration for this program begins January 7, and sessions will run in February.
