Reading Education Assistance Dogs

at Santa Fe Public Library

Early school age children may practice reading aloud to a friendly therapy dog from the Santa Fe Animal Shelter Pet Outreach Program! Our dogs are patient, cuddly, and love to hear stories! Reluctant readers will gain confidence and seasoned readers will enjoy practicing their read-aloud skills in a relaxed environment.

No registration required.

Bring your own book to read to a pup or select one from the Library!
