No BARK in February due to a program on 2/14/15
Illusions Magic Show with Allen Oshiro

Program Dates:  March 14 and April 9, 2015.
We will resume back in September after summer reading program

Children are welcome to come in and read to a gentle BARK therapy dog.
Co-sponsored by the FOL, children will receive a cute bookmark for reading with these furry friends.

PAWS to Read

Children can improve their reading greatly because dogs do not correct them; they just look, listen, and provide a comforting and supportive audience.
It is amazing to watch how insecure young readers respond positively and improve with this therapy.
