Library offers Paws to Read


Kokomo Tribune

---- — The Kokomo-Howard County Public Library offers Paws to Read for reluctant and struggling readers. The next session will be from 11 a.m. to noon March 22 at the south branch, 1755 E. Center Road.

Volunteers bring certified therapy dogs to the library and a child reads to one of the canines. The dog listens while the child practices reading, providing a positive and non-judgmental environment so that the child can improve his or her literacy skills.
