This special event will showcase the talent of our doggie pals. After you share a story or two with our friends, watch the dogs create their own artwork. Maybe you will even win one to take home!
Practice your reading skills by reading aloud to our doggie pals. Bring a book from home or read one of ours! This is an excellent way for children to practice their literacy skills.
Make a furry friend to read with and have some fun! Our dogs will be creating unique paintings for their reading buddies. Be sure to stop in and say hello!
The dogs for this program come from Gold Star Dog Training in Medina, Ohio. For more information on therapy dogs, click here.
