PAWS for Reading—Read with Sophie!

Wed, August 16, 2017 5:30 P.M.
Ramonita G. de Rodriguez Library

We are delighted to host Library PAWS for Reading, a series of programs of PAWS for People that gives children a chance to read aloud to a well-trained therapy animal in order to improve their reading and communication skills.

Since pets don't correct mistakes, the pressure to "perform" is off and reading becomes a fun, positive, enjoyable experience. The unconditional love and calming, non-judgmental presence of an animal help the reader relax and simply enjoy reading.

Program is open to readers of all ages and stages. Preregistration by a parent or legal guardian is required; contact Sara Palmer, Children's Librarian, at 215-686-1768 or palmers@freelibrary.org.
