Come Read to our Dogs

Come Read to Our Dogs!

The Wyoming Free Library offers many programs. The one program that continues to draw attention is the Furry Tails Reading Program.

The program meets every 3rd Saturday at 10:00 a.m. and has helped many children who have attended. The child can bring a book from home or borrow one from the library to read to one of the dogs. The goal is to encourage children to read and help them become comfortable with reading. The library has added an extra incentive for program attendance. Every time a child attends a program, their reading card is punched. After five visits, they receive a Barnes and Noble gift certificate (provided by the program leader Helene Skopec).

The libraries’ Facebook page has pictures of the program.

The program is open to all ages. To register, please call the library at 570-693-1364.
