The library is going to the dogs!  Children have the opportunity to “Paws to Read” with Amy Willey and her certified therapy dog Jubilee.  Creating a calm and encouraging environment Jubilee will sit or lie close and listen quietly as children read aloud to her.  It’s the ultimate in nonjudgmental support, with the added bonus of nice, soft fur. Paws to Read programs have been shown to help readers gain self confidence and improve their reading skills.  The program will be from 4-5 PM, Thursday, Jan  21 with each child receiving 15 minutes to read to Jubilee.  More dates will be added in February and March.  Suggested for beginning readers, reluctant readers or any readers from K-6 grade.  Sign-up is required.  Jubilee will be available for a meet and greet before Storytime on January 20th.
