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.
