Beginning readers through fifth grade (with their parent) are invited to sign up at the Children's Desk for this popular Saturday program. Choose to share a story with either Molly, a wonderful Old English Sheepdog, or Billy Flynn, an amazing black Labrador. These twenty minute sessions are the perfect opportunity to practice and become a better reader in a fun, non-competitive atmosphere. Sign up today; Molly and Billy Flynn are waiting for you!
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.
