Home Kids Kids' Events Paws for Reading

Paws for Reading

Kids will have fun and build skills and confidence by reading to one of our friendly bibliotherapy dogs.  Beginning through fifth grade readers can make an appointment at the Children’s Desk to meet Molly or Billy Flynn from Dr. Paws Pet Assisted Therapy.  These gentle canines are specially-trained to listen and love kids with books!  We will have more weekday openings during the summer.

We ask that parents or guardians register in person at the Children's Desk and sign a permission slip stating that the child participating in the program has no known allergies. All dogs are insured through the organization. You will find sign-up sheets with available times and pictures of the dogs at the Children's Desk. Due to space limitations, we regret that we may be unable to offer repeat sessions.
