Read to a Dog starts up again in July!
Children ages 5-10 are invited to sign up for a 10 minute time slot to practice reading to a certified therapy dog at the Pompton Lakes Public Library.
Reading to a dog is a great way to build your child’s confidence without fear of judgment or criticism.
Space is limited. Registration is required. You may register in person, or by calling 973-835-5661.
You will be able to choose your time slot when registering (3:00, 3:15, 3:30, or 3:45). Please arrive EARLY so as not to miss your registered time.
Children may bring reading materials from home or choose something from the library.
Parent(s)/Guardian(s) are asked to remain on the same floor as their child when reading, but to give them the opportunity to work independently with their assigned therapy dog and handler 🙂
Summer dates: Select Wednesdays from 3 to 4pm. Registration will be opened approximately 1.5 weeks before each session.
