CROWN POINT | This summer head over to the Crown Point or Winfield Branch Library and read to a dog.

The Power Paws Read to the Dogs program is designed to allow kids the chance to read to a non-judgmental listener, one who will accept the story exactly as they read it. Animals are ideal reading companions because they create a relaxed, comfortable, and safe environment.

When a child is having "fun" reading, they think of themselves as a good reader, which helps their self esteem and makes them eager to read.

Below are the dates the dogs will be at the library.

Tuesdays (C.P.) on June 28, July 12, July 26 from 10:30-11:30 a.m.

Wednesdays (Winfield) on June 29, July 13, July 27 from 2:30-3:30 p.m.

Thursdays (C.P.) on June 30, July 14, July 28 from 2:00-3:00 p.m.

For more information about upcoming children programs please contact Paula Newcom at 663-0270.
