Furry friends visit Northwood library for reading fun
Students at Northwood Elementary School got a paw up on reading over spring break thanks to a Tales for Tails reading event.
Volunteers brought in their K-9 Good Citizens to listen to children read. Seventeen dogs and over 50 students participated. “The event tied in with National Library Week and gave students whose families were not traveling during the break a fun activity to do,” said Library Media Specialist Julie Rapp.
Students could choose any book from the library and any dog to read to. Tales for Tails is a program that takes place in libraries across the country as a way for students to practice their reading skills in a “judgment-free zone,” can serve as a reward for all of the hard work the child has done to improve his or her skills and fosters positive associations with reading.
