I don't know about you, but reading makes my tail wag...

Guess what? Dogs like reading too! It may not be scientifically proven, but it's easy enough to tell that they love books. Don't believe me? Then you should join us on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 1:30-2:30 for your chance to read to a dog in our Tail Wagging Readers program.
We'll have kind and gentle therapy dogs and their owners here at SLPL for you to read to!
It's open-house style - come and go as you please. Bring your own books or read from ours. Ages 2-12, parent or caregiver must stay. No registration required. This is a really great program for encouraging reluctant readers, especially kids who are reluctant to read out-loud for fear of making mistakes. The best thing about dogs is that they can't correct your pronunciation. And they look at you with love in their eyes the entire time...talk about a confidence boost!
