This successful program pairs emerging readers with a certified therapy dog and its human owner. Sessions are held throughout the year. Participants commit to six reading sessions. At the conclusion of the sessions, they receive their own Sit, Stay, Read! tee-shirt. Registration forms are available at the Children's Reference Desk.
This non-judgmental reading atmosphere improves confidence in reading skills and reading aloud. Contact 856-7120 for more information on becoming a reader or a volunteer. Log on to www.deltasociety.org to learn more about getting a dog certified as a therapy dog.
