Read to a Dog

Read to a Dog will be back soon!

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 🙂
