Canine Book Nook

Reading to dogs can boost reading skills and self-confidence in children as well as help with emotional and social skills.  Many children are self-conscious and hesitant when reading out loud, but when they read stories to a dog they are less stressed and actually find in enjoyable.

Joan O'Neill, a volunteer with Therapy Dogs International along with Lucy, her canine reading partner, are available for 15 minute reading sessions in the Children's Room.  Lucy is a good listener!  So bring along your favorite book and share a story with a furry friend.

Appointments available on Thursdays, May 12 & 26 at 3pm, 3:15pm, 3:30pm, 3:45pm, 4pm, 4:15pm, 4:30pm Register online
