Improve your reading skills and make a new friend by reading aloud to therapy dogs. The dog-and-handler teams are registered volunteers with Delta Society's Pet Partners Program, sponsored by DoveLewis. This program is for children who are reading on their own. Sessions are 20 minutes in length. Space in this program is limited.
This program is made possible by the Dove Lewis Animal Assisted Therapy and Education Program and Delta Society.
Registration is required. Please phone (503)350-3600 to register or sign up in person at the Children's Desk on the first floor of the library. Registration for the Spring 2011 session begins Wednesday, March 2, 2011.
If you have kids who are reading on their own, it's definitely worthwhile. They say they don't always fill all of the slots.
