READ to Desmond, a Dog!

outside of the library - by the picnic tables

Young readers can read aloud to a certified therapy dog who loves to listen to stories. Desmond is a friendly, comforting, and judgement-free listener who loves to be read to. He encourages kids to read, relax and enjoy the activity of reading out loud. The program is for school-age children, especially beginners learning to read and those who want to improve their confidence in their reading skills. Call to reserve a 15-minute spot.
