Tail-Waggers Club at the La Salle Public Library
Families are invited to join in with reading to the Reading Dogs at the La Salle Public Library. Several Reading Dogs and their humans visit the Library; there, the dogs are entertained by stories read by children. Pre-readers, struggling readers, proficient readers - the dogs truly enjoy all of the stories. Kids choose a favorite short book and read aloud for about 5 minutes. Usually, children will have more than one opportunity to read.
The June schedule for Tail-Waggers is
Saturday, June 15th, Lauren and Kenai at 4:00 p.m.
Saturday, June 29th, Pam and Vera at 1:00 p.m.
Everyone is encouraged to read. For kids who are not yet reading independently, parents may read while the child holds the book and turns the pages. Both the audience and the dogs love the pictures, so even non-readers can hold up a book to show the illustrations to everyone. To help children feel confident in their reading, they should plan to read from a familiar story. Tail-Waggers Club is free and open to the public. The La Salle Library is located at 305 Marquette Street, La Salle, IL.
