How the program works

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.

Countdown to Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever, the highly anticipated sixth book in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series,
comes out November 15. Place a hold on it today

Raising readers

Here at the Fond du Lac Public Library kids’ site you can learn, read, listen and play 24/7. Come after you’ve done the dishes, let the dog out and tucked the kids into bed. This is a space where you can connect with people just like you who are trying to raise kids who will love to read and learn.
