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, March 24, April 21, May 19, 3:30pm.



Watch your child discover the joy of reading with a little help from some furry friends at the Port Angeles, Sequim and Forks 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, Sequim at 360.683.1161 or Forks at 360.374.6402 or visit www.nols.org.
