Registration required & opens 2 weeks before event. Please register and include the total number of readers who are attending

"PAWS for Reading is a program that allows children to read aloud to a therapy dog (or cat, or bunny!) in order to improve reading and communication skills. Children read individually to trained therapy pets (and their handlers) in schools, libraries, or other settings where they can feel comfortable and confident — and have fun! After all, a dog will not correct them or make them feel awkward if they stumble."

MFL is a participating library in PAWS for Reading program! We have enough spaces per visit for 12 kids/readers. We recommend ages 5+ (or any one who can read aloud).

Readers are limited to 10 minutes of reading aloud to a pet, but can read on their own or color while waiting.

The 10-minute time slots will be done on a first come, first to sign up on site at the library on the day of the visit.

If you register but do not show-up without notice, you will forfeit any future sign-ups for this program.

Those unable to sign up are welcome to come and take any open space that may happen from no-shows.

This program is sponsored and made possible by Media Veterinary Hospital!
