The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) program improves children's reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to an animal. But not just any animal. R.E.A.D. companions are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team, going to schools, libraries and many other settings as reading companions for children.
Children MUST pre-register for this program. Each child can sign up for ten minutes of reading. Contact us or stop in if your child is interested.
This program will continue through the fall. The second Wednesday of each month from 4-5 p.m.
