    Contact: Michelle   203-452-2850 x 2930   mturbak@ewml.org
   

Children ages 5-10 may register to read to Gracie, a certified therapy dog, between 5 and 6:30 p.m.in the children's story room.

Gracie and her handler have been trained in the R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dog) program, which improves children's reading and communication skills.

Each child will spend 15 minutes reading to Gracie. They may bring their own book or choose one at the library before their session.

Animals are ideal reading companions because they listen attentively; do not judge, laugh or criticize; allow children to proceed at their own pace; are less intimidating than peers; and they help increase relaxation and lower blood pressure, according to the program. 

Registration is required. Register in person or by phone at 203-452-2850 x 4.
