What's better than curling up with a good book? Cuddling up with a "Paws to Read" Therapy Dog and a good book! Children (grades 2-6) are invited to come and meet some of these special dogs at our Library once a month and have a good time. Each child is given a specific 15-minute time slot for a "one on one" with his or her favorite reading dog.Children must be able to read by themselves. This is not a tutoring program, but rather an opportunity for a child to practice reading skills with an attentive listener. Contact Lorie Brownell 508-533-3217 for more information and to sign up.
