The Perry Public Library will be hosting a registered Animal Rescue League therapy dog which will "listen" to a child read aloud for 15 minutes starting Monday, October 22. Time slots will be from 3:40 to 5:40 pm on Mondays. The child will read for 15 minutes and then have a few minutes to play with the dog. This is a relaxed, nonthreatening way for a first grader to receive extra practice reading in a fun way. Permission slips sent home from school reserve the child's spot.
