Kids can read to dogs at Lee Library

LEESBURG, Ga. — “Wag a Tale at the Library ... Read to the Library Dogs” will take place June 12 and 21, at 1:45 p.m. both dates, at the Leesburg Library.

Sponsored by the Lee County Library, this children’s program is free and open to the public.

Children are allowed to read their favorite book to therapy dogs.

All teams are registered Delta Society Pet Partners. Reading sessions are drop-in and should last no more than 15 minutes each. A skilled Paws Patrol handler will be present at all times.

Wag a Tale at the Library is a program designed for children of all ages to read aloud to dogs.

The dogs are trained to sit and listen to the stories.

Children who have a hard time reading in front of people build confidence in this non-threatening and stress-free environment.

This sounds great and I am certain the children will enjoy reading to the dogs. I think it is sweet.

It is a real pity when children have to read to dogs instead of people who can have a positive influence on their lives. ARF

You evidently do not know what this program is about. I encourage you to attend to find out. This is a program that has taken off all over the nation. It helps kids who have trouble reading (it happens no matter how good the teacher is) and helps them gain confidence in reading out loud. Dogs don't judge like people do (hint, hint). We desperately NEED this program in Do. Co.
