Reading is ‘going to the dogs’ in Doylestown – literally. The Friends of the Doylestown Library are host Reading to the Dogs for readers of all ages. The program, in partnership with Comfort Caring Canines Therapy Dogs, Inc., is being held from 10:00am to 11:30am, the first Saturday of each month (through May), at the Doylestown Library, 150 S. Pine Street, Doylestown.
“It is as educational as it is entertaining to read to dogs,” said Steve Schreiner, president of the Friends of the Doylestown Library. “Certified canines provide a calming effect by acting as a nonjudgmental audience when a story is read out loud to them. This confidence booster can make all the difference to some, and possibly turn others into lifelong readers.”
Children must be accompanied by an adult, and preregistration is recommended – send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (walks-in will be admitted while space is available).
“We’re pleased to again offer this popular program, and to provide books that participants can read to the dogs and then take home with them,” said Kathy MacLean, program chairperson, Friends of the Doylestown Library.
The Friends of the Doylestown Library is a non-profit organization supporting the Doylestown Library.
