Faithful Paws R.E.A.D. @ Your Library

This Saturday, 9/17, the library welcomes Faithful Paws volunteers Karie and Jeanene, and their trained, certified therapy dogs, Cooper and Shiner, for a Reading Education Assistance Dogs program. They will be visiting the library on the 3rd Saturday of each month, from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM. This program is for school age children that would like to practice their reading skills, by reading a story to a furry, non-judgmental audience. You may bring your own book, or choose a library book. Please remember to be kind to our canine volunteers, and we hope that you enjoy this unique reading experience.
