Read to a Dog
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.
This program will be held on September 14, September 21, and September 28 from 3:30 to 4:30 pm in West Branch's Community Meeting Room.
Registration is required. Please call 510-981-6270 starting at noon on 8/24/23, or come into West Branch to register.
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.
