Sign-up for a reading session

Read to a Dog is a great way for children to practice oral fluency, spend time with a friendly dog, and have fun. The goal is to help build a child's self-esteem and confidence, as well as foster a fondness for reading. Children ages 5 to 12 can sign up for a twenty minute session where they will read aloud to a gentle dog provided by the Alliance of Therapy Dogs, a nonprofit all-volunteer organization. Read to a Dog will be held in the North Branch meeting room on Thursday March 7, March 14, March 21, and March 28 from 3:30pm to 4:30pm.  Please call 510-981-6250 or visit the North Branch Library to sign up.
