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.
