Goldie Passed her Tests!

Goldie, a Certified Therapy Dog with Therapy Dogs International, Inc., and her handler, Karen, will be back with their very popular “Paws for Reading” program in the Children’s Room on Saturday, July 27 from 10:30-11:30am.  Therapy Dogs International, Inc. is a volunteer group organized to provide qualified handlers and their dogs for visits in a variety of settings. Their “Paws for Reading” program is designed to allow kids the chance to read aloud to a non-judgmental canine listener in a stress-free environment. While reading to Goldie, children find themselves relaxing, having fun and improving their reading skills!  
Sign up ahead of time to read to Goldie for a fifteen minute reading session during this time or drop by for visit and a chance to read.  Also, don’t forget to record the time spent reading to Goldie on your summer reading logs or folders!
