PAWS Reading Saturday

Mechanicsburg Public Library

PAWS for Reading program is 112 years old !

(well, it is in dog years)

For 16 years, Mechanicsburg Public Library has offered the PAWS for Reading program.  The library provides a safe, comfortable, and fun way for children to gain confidence in their reading skills by reading aloud to a certified therapy dog. Children can curl up in a gigantic, comfy “dog house” with a dog who enjoys having a book or two read to them. Our partnership with the volunteer members of DOGTORS Animal Assisted Therapy from Springfield, OH has provided exceptional “listening” animals for 12 years.

PAWS Reading Saturdays are April 6 & April 20, 2019 with time slots at 9:30, 10:00, and 10:30 a.m. You pick the best reading time slot for you, but registration is required to reserve that time.  The schedule fills up quickly but the library will use a waiting list.  The library will furnish books or you can bring your own favorite books.
