• Read 2 a Dog

    June 27, July 2, & August 15 @ 6:00 PM

    Prepare for a 'tail wagging' reading extravaganza as Rein the Dog and her dad help us 'paw' our way to becoming better readers. It's not 'ruff!' All you have to do is sign up for one of the 15 minute sessions, grab a book, cuddle up and read! Reading to Rein can help your child gain more confidence in his or her reading ability and change reading from a chore to a delight!
