Program Description

Event Details

Paws to Read allows your child to read aloud to a dog for 5 - 7 minutes. A volunteer will be present during the entire session. This activity helps build reading confidence in children while they are relaxing and having fun. This fun and popular program is proven to lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning and it encourages the love of books in an environment full of opportunities to practice the full range of communications skills.

Children must be 4-12 years old, must be accompanied by an adult, and not have any allergies to dogs. You may bring your own books or choose chapter or picture books from the library to read. Permission slips, fill out and submit forms here, may be filled out the day of program. This program will be held the 2nd & 4th Monday of each month. 


Attending Children

Children under 8 must be monitored by a guardian who is at least 13 years old to assure the safety and behavior of that child. Children ages 8 and older may visit the library independently provided they are able to care for themselves and are able to understand and follow the Library’s Behavior Guidelines.
