Waggin’ Tales: Kids Reading with Dogs SATURDAY AT NOON!

Are you ready for a doggone good time? Putney Public Library presents an event for kids featuring guest dogs, a story time, and an opportunity for kids to read to dogs. Join us on Saturday, June 20th at Noon to meet Gallant, Honey Loring’s beautiful and kid-friendly Standard Poodle. Librarian Emily Zervas will read a dog-related story and then kids can take turns reading to Gallant. Gallant has completed rigorous obedience training and participated in numerous school programs—please bring kids but leave other dogs at home!
Reading to dogs has been proven to help those that struggle with literacy to practice the skill of reading aloud in a non-judgmental atmosphere. Reading improves because the child gets to practice, build self-esteem, and associate reading with something pleasant. Putney Public Library is pleased to host this new monthly Saturday story time and invite everyone to meet some of the wonderful dogs that live in our community.
Putney Public Library is located at 55 Main Street, Putney, VT. The program is free and open to the public. Please call or email with questions: 802-387-4407 or
