READ dogs to visit Westborough Library

Westborough – Dogs can’t read, but they can be great listeners – especially Reading Education Assistance Dogs (READ), who are registered therapy dogs. Their owners/handlers are trained as reading companions to children who are emergent or hesitant readers.

 READ dogs will visit the Westborough Public Library for “A Paws for Reading” demonstration Tuesday, Oct. 4, at 5:30 p.m. The public is invited to drop in to meet a READ team and learn more about the program's successes around the country.

The program is specifically intended for emergent readers in grades one through three. It includes one half-hour meeting per week for four weeks, with Session I beginning Monday, Oct. 17, at 5:15 or 6 p.m. in the library's Meeting Room.

Space is limited, and advance registration is required, in person at the Children's Room Desk, beginning Thursday, Oct. 6.  For more information, call Children's Librarian Mrs. Hurley at 508-366-3050.
