Paws to Read

Paws to Read

Port Angeles, first Thursday of every month, September through April (except January), 3pm to 4pm.

Sequim, second Wednesday of every month, September through May, 3pm to 4pm.

Forks, Tuesday, December 16, January 20, February 17, 3:30pm.

Watch your child discover the joy of reading with a little help from some furry friends at the Port Angeles and Sequim libraries. Dogs and trainers from Olympic Gentle Paws Therapy Dog Club will be inside the library listening to young readers of all ages.

Research shows that the more a child reads, the more their reading skills improve. Children are sometimes reluctant to read aloud because they feel unsure or self-conscious. Reading to a dog or other pet provides a non-judgmental audience and encourages children to read with confidence.

For more information about this and other programs for youth, send an email to Youth@nols.org, call Port Angeles at 360.417.8500 or Sequim at 360.683.1161, or visit www.nols.org.
