Children Can Read to a Dog to Improve Reading Skills

Lincoln City Libraries and Healing Heart Therapy Dogs, a local therapy dog organization, are providing an opportunity for children ages 6 to 12 who need to polish their reading skills. Therapy teams made up of a dog and its handler are partnered with children who can practice their reading skills by reading aloud to a dog.

Children read to dogs in 20-minute shifts once a week for six weeks. The next session begins the week of October 1 and runs through the week of November 10th. Pre-registration is required. To register, contact the person listed at these branch libraries:
