It’s no secret that reading to a patient, non-judgmental listener can significantly improve reading fluency and confidence. That’s where our four-legged friends come in! Each child will have the chance to read their favorite story or discover a new one from the library’s collection to a quiet, friendly, and incredibly fluffy audience member.

Whether your child is a hesitant reader or just looking for a new way to enjoy books, the “Read to a Dog” event is the perfect setting. It’s not just about reading; it’s about creating a bond with these wonderful canine volunteers and their trainers, who are all ears, waiting to hear your child’s stories.

So, bring your book enthusiasts (and their favorite books) down to the library for an afternoon filled with tails and tales. Let’s make reading an unforgettable adventure for our kids, one paw at a time. See you there!
