Something special took place in the Children's Room last Thursday. Some Furry Friends came to the library to listen to stories read to them by children. The purpose of the Reading Buddies is to promote confidence in young readers. Children read to trained "listening" dogs who do not correct, criticize or critique. They just listen!
Some of the dogs seemed to listen intently...
... while others just loved all the attention.
The Furry Friends Reading Buddies program will take place the fourth Thursday of every month at 4:00 pm. Children ages 4 through 12 are invited to come and read to one of the wonderful Reading Buddies. But, be sure to come early and register, because this promises to be a very popular program!
