 R.E.A.D.
Reading Education Assistance Dogs

This program improves children’s reading and communication skills by having them read to a dog.  R.E.A.D. dogs are registered therapy animals that have been trained and tested for health, safety, appropriate skills and temperament. When a R.E.A.D. dog is listening, a child’s reluctance to read is transformed into eager anticipation and learning occurs.

Join us and our newest volunteer, Ben, every other week for 20 minute sessions.   Registration is required.  Call the library at 267-3866.  Starting in April on Wednesdays, April 15 and 29.  Call today to reserve your spot with Ben!
