reading with dogDo your kids need a little incentive to do their daily reading over the summer? Reading to a dog  (or other animal) can be a great motivator!  Kids often feel more relaxed reading to a furry friend, and less self conscious about making mistakes.

Although our Read to the Dogs program is on hold due to COVID, there are some other options to explore. Pet Partners is encouraging kids to read to a pet at home in the “We Are All Ears” program.

Dove Lewis offers Facebook Live sessions or you can sign up for their Interactive Read to the Dogs on Zoom! Check their events calendar for more details and registration info.

Our volunteer dogs miss the library and our young readers! Enjoy this video from volunteers Liz and Sterling, an 8 year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi, who became a Pet Partner in 2016.
