Children Invited to Read to a Dog

Lincoln City Libraries (LCL) invites children to read aloud to dogs this fall as a way to improve their reading skills. The program is offered through a partnership between the local Healing Heart Therapy Dogs organization and LCL.

Children ages 6 to 12 who experience reading difficulties or need to practice their reading are teamed with a dog and handler to polish their skills by reading aloud to the animal. Children read to dogs in 20-minute shifts once a week for six weeks. The fall session begins the week of October 2 and continues through the week of November 6.

Pre-registration is required at most branches. Register by contacting the person listed at the branch you prefer to visit. The program is offered at the following locations:
