The Horizons4Girls therapy dog, Faith, will be available for children to read to her at Mead Public Library. Faith is a "Teddy Bear" dog, a Shih Tzu/ Bichon Frise mix. Children of all ages may drop in and meet Faith and read her a story. Sometimes children who are self-conscious when reading in front of classmates can relax when they read to a dog, and they associate reading with something fun and pleasant. Many children just enjoy the opportunity to be with a dog and read a story.
Faith will be in the Story Garden at the library from 6 to 7pm on the following Tuesdays: January 9, January 23, February 6, February 20, March 6, March 20, April 3, April 17, May 1, and May 15.
