On Wednesday, May 18, 6-7 p.m., the Rose Memorial Library in Stony Point will present Reading to Dogs with Paws for a Cause.
Join library staff and dog handlers for the inaugural happening. Children are invited to read to a therapy dog who has been certified to encourage them to improve their reading skills. These therapy dogs provide kids a non-judgmental listener, allowing them to relax and enjoy the experience of reading to a furry friend.
All children, whether they be struggling readers, reluctant readers, or avid ones, are encouraged to enjoy this experience. Light refreshments will be served. For children ages six and up. Registration required. Each child will get a 15 minute block of time to read to one of the dogs. More information on the web at http://www.rosememoriallibrary.org.
