PDL’s Paws to Read program will continue according to the following schedule: (Readers should schedule a 15 minute appointment at the Youth Services Desk or by calling
231-758-3112. There is no charge for this activity.)
Euchre and Barbara Green will be available on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month from 5-7:00 p.m.
Roo and Kim Brown will be available on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 3:30-5:00 p.m. All PAWS activities are held in the Children’s Room.
Readers earn a stamp on a record card for every 15 minutes that they read to one of our dogs. When he/she has earned 4 stamps, they will receive a “Pawsome Reader” tag to wear as a necklace or use as a zipper tag. If readers complete a second card, they a “Pawsome Reader” dog tag.
The theory is, that by reading out loud to the dog, who doesn’t judge how well the child reads, the child’s self consciousness disappears and she gains the confidence needed to become a better reader.
