Read with the Pawprint Ministries Dogs

Practice your reading with a furry friend. For kids K through 8th grade.



6:00pm - 7:00pm


Children's Auditorium




Kids, join us to read with the dogs of Pawprint Ministries!

Why read to dogs? Well, the Pawprint Ministries dogs are GREAT listeners! And kids who may be uncomfortable reading to people often find it easier to read with a furry friend. Plus it's fun to hug the dogs after the story!

We'll meet on selected Thursdays at 6 p.m. in the Children's Auditorium (upstairs). The program is geared to kids who are in K through 8th grade in 2024 and who can read at least a little. We'll have plenty of early reader books on hand, or kids are welcome to bring a favorite short book to read from. Each child will get the chance to read aloud to two or three dogs.

Space is limited, so advance registration is required.

Thanks to the Friends of the Decatur Public Library for sponsoring this program.
