Library gone to the dogs

By ThisIsReno

Six libraries have the Paws 2 Read program which is a reading program for children presented by Paws 4 Love. Each month therapy teams visit participating libraries where friendly dogs lend a loving, non-judgmental ear to beginning readers. After reading to a gentle dog; children receive a free book to keep. Join us for one of these ongoing programs.
