Read to a Dog Day

Saturday, September 9, 2023

Participate in a great literacy event as the library welcomes in our friends from Abilene Therapy Dogs for a great event for local youth.

Youth are encouraged to join your South Branch Library for Read to a Dog Day where youth can practice their reading to a group of wonderful registered therapy dogs who love to hear stories. Partnering with Abilene Therapy Dogs, this literacy initiative allows youth to read to an audience that won’t judge them if they stumble on trying to pronounce a word, or make a mistake. Simply come out, choose a book from a selection we’ll have to offer, and then partner with one of several canine friends to start reading.
