R. E. A. D. - Reading Education Assistance Dogs – Storytimes

Join us for a special storytime with the R.E.A.D. dogs, the first Saturday of every month, 11 a.m. at the bookstore.

The mission of the R.E.A.D. program is to improve the literacy skills of children through the assistance of registered Pet Partner therapy teams as literacy mentors.

The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) program improves children's reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to a dog. But not just any dog. R.E.A.D. dogs are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team, going to schools, libraries and many other settings as reading companions for children.
