Don’t forget! This Saturday we have a new session of Read To Dogs! Children who would like to read-aloud to a dog can sign up for a fifteen-minute session with one of our fabulous Reading Buddies! Stop by or call the Library to register.
A Quick Note about the program:
It is important that kids stay within their allotted time. If you’re late, you forfeit the time you miss, because other kids are waiting for their time.
One child at a time per dog, no parents or siblings. (The handler will also be with the dog to supervise.) Siblings can meet the dog at the end of the session, and parents may take pictures then too, if they want.
Walk-ins will be allowed if there is a space open or we have a no-show for five minutes.
We do enforce the K – 4 age limit, because this is a program designed to give kids confidence in reading. It is for school-aged children. We will not sign up preschoolers; however, if there is an open slot on the day of the program, interested preschoolers can participate too. Time with the dogs is limited, so please realize that we are trying to help children improve their reading skills, not providing access to a dog to play with.
See you there!
