Boost Your Child’s Love for Reading: Join Us for "Read to a Dog"!

The Orangevale Library is thrilled to host the delightful "Read to a Dog" event at the Jane Wise Community Room. This innovative program is designed to turn reading into a joyous occasion by pairing young readers with gentle and attentive therapy dogs. What could be more encouraging than a furry friend who hangs on your every word?

If you're looking for a way to make your child a more confident reader this is the fun, perfect solution. Reading aloud to therapy dogs helps reduce reading anxiety, allowing children to practice their skills in a supportive and fun environment. Plus, it’s a fantastic way for animal-loving kids to connect with reading on a deeper level.
Children can bring their beloved books from home or choose from a wide array of tales available at the library. Either way, they'll enjoy a unique bonding experience, reading to dogs who are specially trained to listen attentively and offer silent encouragement.

Don’t miss out on this paws-itively wonderful opportunity to enrich your child's reading journey. The "Read to a Dog" event promises a memorable afternoon for budding readers, filled with laughter, learning, and lots of wagging tails. Join us and let’s transform reading into an adventure that your child will look forward to, all while making some furry friends along the way!
