Ruth Enlow Library Event

Event Name:Tail Waggin' Tutors
Date:Monday, November 02, 2015
Start Time: 4:30 PM 
End Time:6:30 PM 
Location:Grantsville

Branch: Grantsville
Description: Come join us after school on the first and third Monday of each month and read to a friendly dog! Bring a favorite book with you or find a new favorite in the library.

Therapy Dogs International’s “Tail Waggin’ Tutors” program encourages children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener and furry friend to read to that won’t laugh at them if they make a mistake or stumble over a word, but rather lie next to them and enjoy the story being read to them. The children learn to associate reading with being with the dog, and begin to view reading in a positive way. Over time, the child’s reading ability and confidence can improve because they are practicing their skills, which will make them enjoy reading even more.

No registration is required. Parents are asked to remain in the library while the child is reading with the dogs.

This program will not take place on days when the Garrett County school system is closed or closes early due to inclement weather.
