Reading to a therapy dog is a great way for a child to practice reading. The library is visited by therapy dogs: Ruby, Lila, Sara, and Willow. Our therapy dogs don’t mind when words are sounded out, skipped over, or misspoken. They just love hearing children read! Children read for 5-10 minutes. Children choose their book but will have the most fun reading a familiar book. Doggie Tales meets this summer on Tuesdays from 1:00-2:00pm. Call (815) 223-0229 x 5 for more information or to sign up.
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
