Tail-Waggers Club at the La Salle Public Library
Families are invited to join in with reading to Reading Dogs at the La Salle Public Library. Several Reading Dogs and their humans visit the library; there the dogs are entertained with stories read by children. Pre-readers, struggling readers, proficient readers - the dogs truly enjoy all 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 February schedule for Tail-Waggers is:
Saturday, March 21st, Pam & Vera - 1:00 p.m. - 1:45 p.m.
Saturday, March 28th, Lauren & Kenai - 3:45 p.m. - 4:45 p.m.
Everyone is encouraged to read. For kids who are not yet reading independently, parents may read whole 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 the books 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 Public Library is located at 305 Marquette Street, La Salle.
