Tail-Waggers Club - September
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 with 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 5 minutes. Usually, children will have more than one opportunity to read.
The September schedule for Tail-Waggers is:
Thursday, September 6th - Theresa and Willow at 5:00 p.m.
Monday, September 17th - Nancy and Elli at 4:30 p.m.
Everyone is encouraged to read. For kids not 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 the book to show the illustrations to everyone!
Tail-Waggers Club is free, open to the public, but requires registration. For more information, contact the Library at 815-223-2341.
