The public is invited to participate in the "Read to a Dog" program offered by Lincoln City Libraries and Healing Heart Therapy Dogs, a local therapy dog organization. The program provides an opportunity for children ages 6 to 12 to practice their reading by reading aloud to a dog. Therapy teams are partnered with children who read to a dog in 15- to 20-minute shifts.
The program is offered at following locations and times:
The Bethany Branch Library, 1810 North Cotner Blvd., will offer Toddler Time from 10:30 to 10:50 a.m. Tuesdays June 4 through July 30. Toddler Time is for children 18 to 36 months and their parents or caregivers. During Toddler Time, a librarian reads aloud and leads adult-child pairs in activities. Toddler Time also supports early literacy by building vocabulary and sharing age-appropriate literature in an atmosphere of fun, engaging activity
