Have a Howling Good Time at the Library & Read with Our Dogs!

Do your kids want to practice reading? It's not too late to take the summer fun to the library. Join Ms. Jane, a certified teacher, and her team of certified therapy dogs for a fun new way to experience reading. By reading their favorite book to these special canine companions, your children can refine their reading skills just in time for the start of the school year. Not only are the dogs gentle and adorable, they are also nonjudgmental and attentive- the perfect audience for shy or reluctant readers!

Ms. Jane will be visiting on September 7th from 5:30 p.m. -6:30 p.m. Each participant will enjoy a 15 minute reading session. To register for this one-of-a-kind educational activity, visit W.H. Walters Free Public Library or give us a call at (908) 454-1445.
