Paws to Read is returning to the Swanton Public Library. This program combines kids, dogs, and books.
Children sign up to read aloud for 15 minutes to a certified therapy dog, who is happy just to listen. Improve reading skills and have fun reading with a friendly dog at the same time.
Australian shepherd Charlie will be at the library at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 22. Kids can read to him in 15-minute slots; six slots are available. Slots can be shared for kids who want to come in together.
