Did you know that the library has volunteer therapy dogs? Children who are independent readers may sign up for an appointment to read to either Carmela, who usually visits two Tuesday evenings per month, or Danny, who usually visits two Monday evenings per month.
Reading to a dog builds confidence in the student’s reading ability and helps improve skills.
The student spends one-on-one time with the dog and its owner in our Reading Education Center, and parents may peek through the glass wall to watch yet remain unobtrusively.
To sign up for an appointment, call the Children’s Desk at the Main Library. Carmela will be visiting on the evening of Tuesday, January 7, and Danny will visit on Mondays, January 13 and 27.
