"Paws to Read" at the Library
December 26, 2012
Is your child experiencing difficulties reading or simply needs some encouragement to enjoy reading? If so, the Paws to Read program, sponsored by the Livermore Public Library and the Valley Humane Society, might be the solution.
The Paws to Read program matches elementary-aged beginner readers with trained and certified dogs in a non-judgmental environment. For 25 minutes, your child will read to their furry friend with the dog’s owner quietly looking on to help with any tricky words. Programs of this type have been successful across the country, and testimonials from Livermore parents have been extremely positive.
The next series for 2013 will start in January at the Civic Center Library, as follows:
• Wednesdays, January 16 - March 6, 7 p.m. (two sessions, 7-7:25 and 7:35-8 p.m.). Registration for this series begins Wednesday, January 2.
Children may register for up to three sessions during this series, as space allows. Drop-ins may be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Participating children should not be fearful of dogs or have allergies to pets.
For more information about the Civic Center series or to register, please call the Livermore Public Library’s Children’s Desk at 925-373-5504.
