Trained Canine to Help Children Practice Reading at Pella Library


The Pella Public Library will begin hosting an exciting and beneficial new program for young readers next week. “Paws to Read” helps kids practice reading to a non-judgmental listener: a dog. Wendy Street, Director of the Pella Public Library tells KNIA/KRLS News that the services of “Stuart” – a trained therapy dog – will be made available to kids at the library twice per month for fifteen-minute shifts for each child. Registrations are required. To sign your child up for a time, contact the Pella Public Library at 628-4268.
