Our Summer Reading Program :"Adventure Begins At Your Library"! Paws to Read is a chance for children grades 1st-5th to read to a non-judgmental listener. For many children, this allows them a chance to experience stress free reading; they’re able to relax and have fun while reading! Read with Roo, a 6-year-old retired Greyhound. He and his owner, Jan are certified for therapy through Pet Partners. We will have six 15-minute time slots available on Thursday, June 6 for children in grades 1st-5th from 4 -5:30 pm.
