The Tale-Waggers are bringing their 4 legged friends to the library and they're eager to hear a good story.


Sign your children up for a chance to read their favorite book(s) to some of the cuddliest dogs around.

Reading sessions are limited. Registration is required.

Experts have found that children who read at a level below their peers are often intimidated by reading aloud in a classroom setting. Thus reading becomes a chore. Children find that reading to an animal is less intimidating and less stressful than reading aloud in front of peers, teachers or parents.

The Tale-Waggers have worked for more than 9 years to improve the literacy skills of the children in our community through the use of certified therapy dogs as literacy mentors.

Any child who wants to have fun reading with the dogs is accepted, as well as those who are struggling with reading skills and self-confidence. After all, it's fun to go to the library; it's fun to read for pleasure; and it's especially great to share this fun with a furry friend.
