Paws 2 Read
Paws 2 Read is one of the many programs offered by Paws 4 Love Therapy Dogs. Therapy Dog teams will be visiting the library every month to participate in this engaging program where friendly dogs lend a loving, non-judgmental ear to beginning readers.
Research has shown that when a child is given repeated opportunities to read to a dog, the child grows more confident in their reading ability and develops a desire to read on their own. Children of all ages are welcome. The next program will be in April so watch the website or inquire at the library for more information.
