Read to a Dog

Child reads while two children cuddle dog (Air Force photo by Jamie Pitcher)

Need to get some extra reading practice? Come read aloud to our friend Scout, a trained therapy dog who is full of patience, doesn't correct you, and loves to be petted. Scout (and handler Sandy) will be at Elmhurst Library on Saturday mornings and will see up to 6 young readers each visit. You can bring your own book or choose from the library shelves.

Come sign up for your turn to read to a dog!
