Read to a Dog at the Library!

April 15, 2015 by pjorgensen

Photo of dogs and books Lincoln City Libraries and Healing Heart Therapy Dogs, a local therapy dog organization, are providing an opportunity for children ages 6 to 12 who have experienced reading difficulties or who just need to practice their reading. Therapy teams are partnered with children who polish their skills by reading aloud to a dog. Children read to dogs in 20-minute shifts, once a week for four weeks. This spring session will begin the week of Monday, March 23 through Saturday, May 2.

Pre-registration is required; see the contact information below to register.
