The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) literacy program uses therapy animals to improve children's reading and education skills. Join the R.E.A.D. team at the Waldo Branch on the second Saturday each month between September 2017 and April 2018 (excluding December and January) as children read the pooches some prose. Children may sign up for a 10-minute slot each Saturday. Parents must sign a release form before children will be allowed to read with a dog.
