Tail-Waggers Club at the La Salle Public Library
Tail-Waggers Club at the La Salle Public Library. On Saturday, April 27th at 4:00 p.m. the La Salle Public Library will host Tail-Waggers Club, a program that brings together youth, certified therapy dogs, and books. Children and families are invited to share reading with Kenai. Children choose a favorite short book or story, and read aloud to the dogs for about five minutes. Children that are not yet reading independently are welcome to read to the group with the help of the adult caregiver.
Both the audience and the dogs love the pictures, so even non-readers can hold up the book to show the illustrations to everyone. To help children feel confident in their reading, they should plan to read from a favorite familiar story. The program is designed to help children become confident, proficient readers and to help these young readers develop a life long love of reading and learning. Children who are confident readers not only excel in their school work, but are more willing to investigate new topics. and explore their world through reading.
Tail-Waggers Club is free and open to the public. For more information, please call the Library at 815-223-2341. The La Salle Public Library is located at 304 Marquette Street, La Salle and is ADA compliant and welcoming.
