Tail Waggin’ Tutors: Session 1
January 13th - 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Tail Waggin’ Tutors gives children who may be struggling with the skill of reading out loud a chance to practice reading to a nonjudgmental listener. Certified Therapy Dogs will be available in half hour time slots, so children can read one-on-one to a new friend. This program is also great for children who may need to overcome a fear of dogs. Children are welcome to sit with, pet, and talk to the dogs during their half hour time slot.
Please register ahead of time, so we can make sure there is a dog here for every child who signs up. Registration will close Friday, January 10 at 4:30 PM, so we have time to contact our dog handlers in advance. If you’re unable to make it on the day you’re registered, please contact the library, so we can give that spot to another child.
