Need to practice your reading?  Well it starts here with Tinkerbell and Wendy, the Pawtucket Library therapy dogs! Join the girls (including their human mom Dawn) and watch your reading improve along with your confidence at public speaking.*

Appointments are in 15 minute blocks, please call or email the library in advance.

"A study at Tufts University found that students who read to dogs have better outcomes than students who read to humans. They experienced a slight gain in reading ability and attitudes toward reading, while those who read to people experienced a decrease on both measures. Even more noticeable, there was no attrition in the dog group, while one third of those reading to humans failed to complete the program"- Library Journal
