Paws to Read continues at SPL

Paws to Read is continuing at Swanton Public Library. It combines kids, dogs and books.

Children sign up to read aloud for 15 minutes to a certified therapy dog, who is happy just to listen. Improve reading skills and have fun reading with a friendly dog at the same time.

Australian shepherd Charlie will be there at 10:30 a.m. on Saturdays, Jan. 12 and 26. Kids can read to him in 15-minute slots; six slots are available. Slots can be shared for kids who want to come in together.

To register or for more information call 419-826-2760, visit the library’s website at, or visit the library at 305 Chestnut St.
