Paws to Read

Children Drop-in

Young readers can practice and improve their literary skills throughout the summer by reading to well-behaved therapy dogs!

Therapy Dogs of Central Wisconsin will bring some of their canines to the library, and kids can pick out their own book to share. Kids read and the dogs sit quietly and listen - simple as that! This is a drop-in event, so children are welcome to come any time.

Free and open to the public with no registration required. Contact us for more information.
