Kids and K-9s Reading Together
Who says reading is “ruff”? Not Bree!
Bree is one of several TDI certified, therapy dog/handler teams participating in the Kids and K9s Reading Together program at the Olean Public Library. Co-sponsored by the Olean Kennel Club, Inc., this program gives children the opportunity to practice their reading fluency and gain confidence by reading to Therapy Dogs. Participants have 20 minutes individual reading time and may bring their own reading material. Any school age child may participate.
We are currently scheduling reading times for March 2012. We have dog and handler teams available Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday after school from 3:30 to 4:30 and Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30. If your child are interested in reading with one of our Therapy Dogs please register by February 29, 2012. Sessions will start March 5, 2012. Sessions will not be scheduled unless there are at least two participants for the session. Register in the children’s area of the Olean Public Library or by phone at (716) 372-0200. Please remember our dog/handler teams are volunteers. If your child is unable to make a scheduled session please notify us as soon as possible.
