PAWS 2 Read

Event Type: Children
Age Group(s): School Age, Tweens, Preschoolers
Date: 5/11/2019
Start Time: 10:30 AM
End Time: 12:00 PM
 Paws to Read pairs Delta-registered therapy animals and their handlers with young readers. Warm, brown eyes and happy grins make all the difference to children's reading experiences resulting in an increase in reading levels and word recognition, and a higher desire to read and write. The animals listen and don't tease, laugh, or judge the children. Plus, the animals love to be read to!

Sign up for a therapy animal will begin at 10:15 a.m. for a 15-minute time slot between 10:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. Which animal the child will read to will be on a first-come, first-served basis the day of the program. Please go to the PAWS sign-up table in the Youth Services area of the library.
