Paws to Read
Reading Dog at Library in July

Does your child need to build reading confidence? We've got a fun (and furry) way to help them. Every Wednesday in July from 3:30 to 4:30, we'll be hosting a Reading Dog! Kids can have a 15 minute slot to read to the dog and build their read-aloud abilities and confidence. There are four time slots each week, for one child at a time. See the front desk for sign-up sheet.
