Paws to Read helps young readers

Kids ages 6 to 12 who could benefit from practicing their reading are invited to participate in the Fond du Lac Public Library’s Paws to Read program. Kids read aloud to certified therapy dogs in a relaxed setting. Studies have shown that reading aloud to dogs helps put the child at ease. Kids benefit from the dogs’ patience, acceptance and comforting presence while they practice reading and build skills. The therapy dogs will be accompanied by their certified handlers and are from the group Healing Paws, Inc.

The program is run at various times throughout the year. Check the online Calendar or call the Children’s Desk at (920) 322-3940.

Paws to Read

Looked on the calendar, no Paws to Read listed in June. Is there times planned for June or the rest of the summer?

Paws to Read

We aren't offering Paws to Read over the summer, but it will be coming back in the fall! Our fall calendar will be up on our website towards the end of July.
