Read to the Dogs

Be a “Reader of the Pack” at the Minneola Schoolhouse Library. All ages are invited to join the PAWS Therapy Dogs every first Tuesday of the month from 4:30-5:30 pm. Drop in anytime during that hour, the next date is November 6. PAWS Therapy Dogs provide compassionate canine community service work by visiting libraries, schools, senior centers and nursing homes.

Children, teens, and adults can hang out, pet and read a book with these trained therapy pups. Kids’ reading skills can be strengthened and reading confidence increased during this fun literacy time with these wonderful dogs and their handlers. If your child is not reading yet, no worries.
