Once you’ve checked out the book, unwrap it, see what book you’ve got and enjoy!

Dogs and Kids Reading books, how great is that! Sign-ups are available at the door on a first-come, first-served basis. Registered therapy dogs (and their handlers) are on-site each week for this unique reading program.  This is a great opportunity for children to practice reading to a nonjudgmental listener, that will enjoy the story without laughing if the child makes a mistake or stumbles over a word. With this positive practice the child’s confidence builds in their reading skills. This is a wonderful opportunity for children of all ages and reading levels to choose a book and read to the dogs.
