Read to a therapy dog!

Children of all ages have an opportunity to improve their reading skills and make a new friend at the Independence Public Library by reading aloud to a dog.

Lenny is therapy-certified, meaning he has passed an obedience and temperament test and receives regular veterinary care. Lenny and his handler, Naomi, are from Therapy Dogs International, and have previous volunteer experience.

Be sure to sign up in advance for a private fifteen-minute time slot between 6:00-8:00 pm to read to Lenny in Flutterby Cove. There will be another opportunity to read to Lenny Thursday, October 12, from 6:00-8:00 pm.

A parental consent form must be signed prior to participation. To sign up and find out more information, call at 334-2470 or email
