BARK Reading Program


Beach Animals Reading with Kids
at the Hermosa Beach Library

Every second Saturday from 10:30am to 12pm

Please register at the Children's Desk

Remaining 2018 dates: Oct. 13th, Nov. 10 & Dec. 8th

Children are welcome to come in and read to a gentle BARK therapy dog.
Co-sponsored by the FOL, children will receive a cute bookmark for reading with these furry friends.

PAWS to Read

Children can improve their reading greatly because dogs do not correct them; they just look, listen, and provide a comforting and supportive audience.
It is amazing to watch how insecure young readers respond positively and improve with this therapy.

Call (310) 379-8475, or stop in at the Hermosa Beach library
to reserve your child’s or grandchild’s turn to Sit, Stay, and Read to a trained dog.
