Staff Reports

Douglas County Public Library in Minden will be participating in the Reading Paws Program, an affiliate of Reading Education Assistance Dogs.

Starting on Saturday, the library will host a handler and their dog on site. The handler and their dog will work with children during set dates and times on a one-on-one basis.

Children in first through third grades may sign up for a 15-minute session to read to a Reading Paws dog. There is no charge for this program.

Parents must complete a permission form for each child who participates.

Permission forms may be filled out in person at the library or printed from the library’s website.

Reading Paws is dedicated to improving the reading skills of children using certified therapy teams as literacy mentors.
