ARF! – Read with Dogs at the Library

September 15, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)
Every week on Tuesday

Practice reading skills with a furry friend! A great way for reluctant readers to practice reading aloud to the kindest, least judgmental listener around.

Drop in for a 20 minute turn on Tuesdays between 3:30 and 5:00 (sign ups open 3:00-4:15) More info: 564.5603

Studies show that reading with a therapy animal motivates reluctant readers and builds reading confidence. As one child said of the program, “It makes reading more fun.” Surveys about these programs reveal that 75% of children who attend more than three sessions want to read more frequently because of the program. “This encouraged my son to read more than he normally would.” said one parent.
