Paws to Read: Read Aloud to Scout!

Child reading to a dog at Oakland Public Library

Do you need a non-judgmental listener and furry friend to keep you company as you practice your new reading skills?

Are you in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade, and love dogs? Come read aloud to Scout! 

Sandy brings her dog Scout to the library every Thursday afternoon in the Children's Area.

Their training through Therapy Dogs International, as well as Sandy's years as a teacher will help new and fluent readers feel comfortable and cozy while they practice reading aloud.
