Children ages 5-12 who are reading independently may come to the library to share a story or two with some adorable four legged friends. 

Programs similar to Dog Tales have been widely popular with kids, parents and educators since they first started cropping up in schools and libraries more than a decade ago. Research has shown that reading aloud to dogs is beneficial to children because the presence of a dog creates an environment that is relaxed, comfortable, nonjudgmental and fun.

Registration is not required to attend.
