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 each month between September 2015 and April 2016 (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 one of the dogs.
Coterie Theatre artists read from favorite children's books while young audience members can “jump into the story,” adding their own improvisation. May's book selection: Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown. Appropriate for all ages.
