Tales to Tails

A happy little girl lies down on her front in her garden with her dog by her side. She is reading a book to her dog and smiling.Read to Maggie, the library's attentive certified therapy dog.

Reading to dogs encourages children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener and furry friend.  Dogs don’t mind if their reader makes a mistake or stumbles over a word.  They are perfectly content to lie next to them and enjoy the story being read.

Each child will choose a book and how much reading and petting to do. Children can sign up for a private ten-minute slot to read to Maggie.

Ages 6 to 12
