Reading to certified therapy dogs can benefit reluctant or self-conscious readers, and the Kent Free Library partners with two certified therapy dogs to provide opportunities for children in grades K-5 to “Paws to Read.”

Call Youth Services at 330.673.4414 to sign up for a 15 minute time slot to read to Bing, a golden doodle, on Saturday, September 9, between 11:00 am and 12:00 pm or Lupin, a greyhound, on Sunday, September 17 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Both love listening to stories!
