Admission

  • General public: $0.00

Trained therapy dogs from K-9 Connection come to the library to listen to and encourage your child's reading skills. A signed permission form from a parent or guardian is required. It has been observed over and over that children's reading abilities improve as they gain confidence by reading to dogs. Why? The dogs listen uncritically and wag their tails as the kids read.
