Starting September 8, a READing Paws therapy dog will be available at the Douglas County Public Library every Thursday between 3:00 and 5:00. Reading with animals can help children feel calm, gain confidence, and become strong readers.
Children of all ages and reading levels are invited to read with a registered therapy dog and the dog’s handler. Each child will spend 15 minutes with a dog. Time slots are available on a first come, first serve basis.
Parental permission is required, and permission forms are available at the library. This program is offered in partnership with READing Paws, a local affiliate of Intermountain Therapy Animals.
