Read aloud to Libby, a certified therapy dog from Alliance Therapy Dogs. Reading to an attentive, non-judgmental audience is a great way for young people to build fluency, and being with a pet has many other proven health benefits.

This program is first-come, first-serve, so drop in at any time. Bring books from home, or pick them out from the library.

This program is recommended for ages 5 and up.
