Sign up to read to a dog at the library! *Registration Required

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. Malachi is therapy-certified, meaning he has passed an obedience and temperament test and receives regular veterinary care. Malachi is from Therapy Dogs International.

Be sure to sign up in advance for a private fifteen-minute time slot between 5:00-8:00 pm to read to him in Flutterby Cove. A parental consent form must be signed prior to participation. To sign up and find out more information, call at 319-334-2470, or email
