MINDEN, Nev. — Reading with animals can help children feel calm, gain confidence, and become strong readers. Starting August 17, a READing Paws therapy dog will be available at the Minden Library every Thursday afternoon between 3:30 and 5:30.
Children of all ages and reading levels are invited to read with a registered therapy dog and the dog’s handler. Each child will spend 15 minutes with a dog. Time slots are available on a first come, first serve basis. Parental permission is required, and permission forms are available at the library. This program is offered in partnership with READing Paws, a local affiliate of Intermountain Therapy Animals.
The Douglas County Public Library is located at 1625 Library Lane in Minden. Find us on Facebook and Twitter, douglas.lib.nv.us, or call 775-782-9841.
