We are delighted to announce that an innovative reading program for children will be held at the Felton Branch beginning on August 20. Each Saturday from 9:30 to 10:30 in the morning, trained therapy dogs will be available at the Library be attentive, non-judgmental partners for children reading aloud. Families may reserve an individual time slot for their child to sit quietly with a therapy dog and a book and read.

Research shows that frequent reading opportunities in a comfortable environment help children become better readers.

For more information and to register for a twenty-minute time slot, call Melanee Barash at 427-7706, ext. 7672.
