Children Can Read to a Dog This Summer

Lincoln City Libraries and Healing Heart Therapy Dogs, a local therapy dog organization, are providing an opportunity for children ages 6 to 12 to polish their reading skills this summer. 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 four weeks. The next session begins the week of June 2 and runs through June 28. Pre-registration is required. To register, contact the person listed at these branch libraries:
