Tales to Tails

Saturday, July 13, 2019

Sign up to read to a certified therapy dog between 10:00 am and noon. *Registration Required at 319-334-2470.

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 and Lenny are both therapy-certified, meaning they have passed obedience and temperament tests and receive regular veterinary care. Be sure to sign up in advance for a private fifteen-minute time slot between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm to read at the library. A parental consent form must be signed prior to participation.

To sign up and find out more information, call the library at 319-334-2470 or email
