Outreach Activities

R.E.A.D. Dogs    Paws 4 Love

Reading Education Assistance Dogs provide an inviting and motivating environment for children. R.E.A.D. dogs are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owners as a team to help improve children's reading and communication skills.

Learning to read is often less about intellectual limitations than about over coming fears.

BUT WHY DOGS?

Animals are ideal reading companions because they:

- help increase relaxation and lower blood pressure
- listen attentively
- do not judge, laugh, or criticize
- allow children to proceed at their own pace
- are less intimidating than peers

The Results Are SIGNIFICANT

Participating kids make enormous strides in reading and
communication skills while, building self-esteem, confidence, 
and social skills. 

And there are other bonus benefits - performance in other subjects tends to improve, as does attendance.

Paws 4 Love @ The Liberty Municipal Library

School-age children can sign up for a time to come to the Liberty Municipal Library and "READ TO ROVER"!  Time slots will be filled on a "first come - first served" basis.  The reading sessions will last about 20 minutes.  Check with the circulation desk for available times and make your appointment today!
