Paws to Read, which combines kids, dogs, and books, is returning to the Swanton Public Library this month. Children sign up to read aloud for 15 minutes to a certified therapy dog, who is happy just to listen. Kids can improve reading skills and have fun reading with a friendly dog at the same time.
Australian shepherd Charlie will be at the library at 10:30 a.m. on Saturdays, April 6 and 27. Kids can read to him in 15-minute slots, with six slots are available. Slots can be shared for kids who want to come in together.
For more information or to register call 419-826-2760, visit the library’s website at www.swantonpubliclibrary.org, or visit the library at 305 Chestnut St. in Swanton.
