Read to Our Therapy Dogs

Wednesday, June 8, 2016

 Call or stop in to register and pick a 10 minute spot between 4-5PM.

The use of trained therapy dogs in reading programs can result in children who feel comfortable reading out loud, read more often, attempt more difficult books, and actually look forward to reading! They're not just learning how to read, they're learning to love to read!

Saturday, June 11@ 10:00 
Be part of a new book club and give your suggestions on how to make it great!
Please let us know you plan to attend. A snack will be served.
