These Dogs Are All Ears

April 2017 Update:  We were saddened to learn that Fluff passed away at the end of March.  Darla will continue serving as a Paws to Read dog, and there will be a new member of the team soon.

Kids love reading aloud to our Paws to Read pooches, Darla and Fluff.  Paws to Read is a program that helps young readers improve their literacy skills.  Sign-up at our youth services desk to schedule your time to read to these wonderful dogs, who are happy to listen.  They meet in one of the library's study rooms on the first and third Saturdays of each month from 10-11 a.m.

We recently made a book trailer featuring a children's picture book about reading to library dogs.  Click the video below to watch.  Click here to place a hold on the book in our Evergreen Indiana online catalog (you'll need to log-into your E.I. account).
