SPL hosting Paws to Read

Swanton Public Library will again be hosting Paws to Read which 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. They can improve reading skills and have fun reading with a friendly dog at the same time.

Australian shepherd Charlie will be there Saturday, Dec. 21 from 10:30 a.m. to noon. 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.

Call 419-826-2760, visit the library’s website at www.swantonpubliclibrary.org, or visit the library at 305 Chestnut St. to register.
