Children can sign up to read a book or books of their choice to a therapy dog “one-on-one” for 20 minutes. The purpose of this program is to encourage reading, improve language skills, and give children a sense of security and confidence in their reading ability.
Please register in the Children’s Department. Space is limited! Children must be able to read on their own to participate. We welcome children of all abilities. Teaneck residents are given priority. If you are unable to make your “appointment” please give at least 24 hours notice. Children are asked to please arrive on time with their books ready, or early so that they have time to pick out their books. Parents do not accompany their child, but may observe. The dog’s trainer is present at all times. Please contact the Children’s Department at 201-837-4171 x4 for more information or to register.
