Sat Mar 11 – Sat Apr 8, 2017 11:00am – 12:00pm
READ to PAYSON for Ages 5 to 11
Sponsored by: DERBY PUBLIC LIBRARY CHILDREN'S DEPARTMENT
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
Janet Sabovik and her therapy dog Payson are part of the lineup of events at the Derby Public Library. Children ages 5-11 are invited to share a book with Payson during this interactive reading program.
Each child will be given a 10-15 minute time slot to read to Payson. Payson, an Australian Shepherd, is a rescue dog who was found roaming the streets of Kentucky. She and Janet are registered with Therapy Dogs, Inc. and volunteer throughout the community.
This is a great opportunity for beginner or reluctant readers as well as experienced readers to build confidence, enhance their reading skills achieved during the school year, and encourage a love of reading. Participants are encouraged to stop by the Children’s Room to select a book with Payson’s “paw of approval” to share with her for the program.
