Program Description

Tales for Tails

This program pairs trained and certified therapy dogs with children in Grades K-5 who want to practice reading aloud.

On the night that the program meets, there will be 4 time slots available for kids to meet and read to a pup on the patio:

  • 6-6:10pm
  • 6:15-6:25pm
  • 6:30-6:40pm
  • 6:45-6:55pm

In the case of inclement weather, this program will be held in the Story Room. 

When registration opens (two weeks before the date of the program), you can register online below, by calling 309.590.6155, or in person at the Children's Services Desk at the Library.

Miss Alex will personally email those who register to assign them a time slot and introduce them to the dog they'll be meeting!
