Kids enjoy "Paws to Read" program

Posted:

Some local children got a chance to read to a wet-nosed listener Monday.

Kids from 1st through 6th grade read to Benny, a black lab, at Harris Branch Library for the "Paws to Read" program.

This is the 4th time Benny has visited the library, and the program has gotten a good response, especially from the readers.

"It gives them an additional chance to read aloud and practice their reading skills. It's an enrichment for them to continue their reading and love of reading," says Lori Walsh with Harris Branch Library.

About a dozen kids have gotten a chance to read to Benny so far, through the program.
