PAWS To Read
Third Friday of the month
Forks Branch Library
Reading to a dog or other animal creates a supportive and fun environment in which readers of all ages and abilities can practice their skills with confidence and joy. Research shows that the more a child reads, the more their reading skills improve. For nervous or self-conscious readers, reading to a therapy dog can be a helpful way to practice reading without feeling intimidated or judged. Dogs from Therapy Dogs International will be at the library to listen to readers of any age and level!
