Haldimand County Public Library offering virtual ‘Paws to Read’ program

Haldimand County Public Library, in partnership with Therapeutic Paws of Canada, is offering an exciting literacy program designed to help children who would benefit from extra practice with their reading.

Children can register for a free 15-minute session to read a book of their choice to a certified team. Paws to Read dogs provide undivided attention to the children as they read aloud.

Studies have shown that reading to dogs encourages confidence and boosts self-esteem in children who struggle to read aloud in class, therefore boosting their literacy.

For the month of June this program is being offered virtually on June 2, June 16 and June 30 starting at 4:00pm. Registration is required and spaces are limited.

For more information or to register please contact Katrina Krupicz, Community Outreach Coordinator at kkrupicz@haldimandcounty.on.ca or 905-318-5932 ext. 6552.
