Tail Waggin' Tutors at the Jonesborough Public Library

Date(s):  June 02 - July 27, 2017
Venue: Jonesborough Public Library

Jonesborough, TN 37659

JONESBROUGH, TN — Therapy Dogs International's "Tail Waggin' Tutors" program encourages children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener and furry friend to read to that won't laugh at them if they make a mistake or stumble over a word, but rather lie next to them and enjoy the story being read to them.

Dates are June 2, June 16, July 13 and July 27 a 4 p.m.

The children learn to associate reading with being with the dog, and begin to view reading in a positive way. Over time, the child's reading ability and confidence can improve because they are practicing their skills, which will make them enjoy reading even more.

The library's free 15 minutes sessions are limited, and registration is required.

To register, visit the Jonesborough Library or call 423-753-1800.
