READ Dog Saturday
Kooper is a Delta Certified Therapy Dog that is also trained as a Reading Education Assistance Dog. R.E.A.D. is the first literacy program in the country to use therapy animals as reading companions for children. This unique method provides children an opportunity to improve their reading skills in a comfortable environment by reading aloud to dogs.
Kooper will be in the Reedsburg Public Library’s Storytime Room on Saturday, October 20th from 10-11am. Books can be brought from home or chosen from the shelves at the Library.
Additional information about the R.E.A.D. Dog program can be found at www.dogsoncall.org and information about all upcoming programs at the Reedsburg Public Library can be found at www.reedsburglibrary.org or by calling the Library at 768-READ(7323).
