Read to a Dog
Read to Chase!
Mondays March 19, April 16, and May 21
Between 4:00 and 5:30 PM
Chase, our reading dog, is a Collie/Australian Cattle Dog mix. He loves kids and snuggling and loves to be read to. This program is for all ages of children, and is particularly valuable for reluctant readers.
Chase has a very interesting story of his own. His owner, Jenny, wrote a chapter about him in the book Love, Animals & Miracles, by Dr. Bernie Siegel & Cynthia Hurn. Read his story here.
Sign up for a 15 minute reading appointment with Chase by calling the library at 608-798-3881.

It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.
"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me be on my way. Speaking of way, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract". - GoodReads.com
Sign up and get your free copy of the book at the Circulation Desk at the library, or call 798-3881.
