The Paws to Read Program is presented each month on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday at 6:00 PM. Princess, a certified and trained therapy dog,  would be delighted to listen to your child read. Paws to Read is a nationally recognized literacy program that increases the readers confidence and comfort level as they read aloud to a trained dog.
