The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) literacy program uses therapy animals to improve children's reading and communication skills. Join the R.E.A.D. team at the Waldo Branch the second Saturday in July (July 11) as children read the pooches some prose. Children may sign up for a 10-minute slot. Parents must sign a release form before children will be allowed to read with one of the dogs.
