Tail Waggin' Tutors

Come and read with our therapy dog (or just pet her)! Pick a spot in the Library, grab a book, and hang out with our adorable furry friend, Trixie. All ages are welcome! No registration is required.

When children read out loud to dogs, it helps them "by providing a non-judgmental listener and furry friend to read to that won’t laugh at them if they make a mistake or stumble over a word, but rather lie next to them and enjoy the story being read to them. The children learn to associate reading with being with the dog, and begin to view reading in a positive way."
