Read With an Animal
Saturday, February 17, 10:00 am–11:30 am
Grades 1-3. Volunteers will help put young readers at ease so they can cuddle up with a certified therapy animal and practice reading aloud. Most libraries host dogs and you can call ahead to see if other animals will be visiting. Sign up for a 15-minute time slot by calling 612-543-6400. Drop-ins will be accommodated based on availability. Collaborator: PAWS to READ is a program of North Star Therapy Animals (NSTA). All handlers are required to be trained in an additional children’s reading program that focuses on utilizing registered therapy animals.
